If you’ve been waiting for the NFL’s stranglehold on our No. 1 spot to end, this is your week: the World Series between Kansas City and San Francisco elevated baseball above the gridiron for the first time in a very long time. Of course plenty of people watched college football online via Slingbox, and plenty of people watched pro football online via Slingbox, but there were enough Slingbox users watching baseball on their laptops, tablets or phones to push the Fall Classic to the top.
On another note: We hear a lot about Slingbox users watching the NFL internationally. But we figure that usually means American football fans watching their teams when they’re abroad for business or vacation. This week brought a different meaning to the term as the Lions and Falcons squared off in London. It wasn’t the first London game of the season, but it was the first in history to be played during the morning on the East Coast (and VERY early morning on the West Coast). That didn’t stop Slingbox users from watching, as the game reached our top 10 at No. 9.
We’ll be back next week with another set of top 10s!
