A look at Slingbox in the UK

Slingbox has been a hit in the U.S. ever since we launched our first product in 2005. With one device, we’ve made it possible to bring your satellite or cable subscription outside of your home and watch TV content on-the-go. But our reach goes far beyond just the U.S., and we thought it would be fun to take a look at another popular place for Slingbox – the United Kingdom.

There are currently two Slingbox models available in the UK, the Slingbox 350 and the M1, which was just introduced last May. As popularity for Slingbox continues to grow in the UK, so does our availability on shelves. You can find us at popular stores including PC World or Currys, Europe’s leading electrical and telecommunications retailers. Here’s a look out our new setup in the PC World store in London:

Old Kent Road, London

Are you a Slingbox user living in the UK? If so, what are your favorite shows to watch using your device?

    Do you have an app on the new Apple TV yet?

    If you’re lucky the power supply will last 12 months and 1 day. Then you will have to but another one (assuming at that point your SlingBox is still supported, as Sling keeps discontinuing them and leaving users with no App that supports older boxes.)

    So we can get any american channels in the UK?

    What is the minimum speed needed on the network?

      Alex, I don’t think you understand what Slingbox does – it connects to YOUR Set Top Box / Antenna etc, and lets you see YOUR TV elsewhere – it doesn’t let you view US TV here…

    So…

    What’s better about the 350/M1 than my current UK Slingbox, given I have no interest in “Wi-Fi” connection (have perfectly good cables thanks), that would justify replacing it?

    Will it *actually* work with Roku now?

    (and agree with Peter… power supplies you supply fail within 12-18 months, on every one I’ve had…)

    I’d like an excuse to upgrade/replace some tech, but I see nothing new.

    What is the M1? Just looking to buy one – 350 or the Pro HD I havent done any research yet but assuming the Pro HD is the better option? Can you plug with HD cable from your laptop to a TV?
