Okay, and if you think it's not enough to review one Slingbox, here's another one I've thankfully received from Sling Media. It's the brand new Slingbox PRO which Sling Media recently announced. Brand new, you think? Yes, brand new for the UK where it was introduced last week. While introduced in the US last year already, the Slinbox PRO for the UK is a feature adopted version of the original Slingbox PRO. Like the US version, the UK version also features widescreen (16:9) support and increased streaming performance (full VGA resolution, up to 8 Mbps around the home) from either standard definition or high definition set top boxes

However, especially designed for the UK market, the Slingbox PRO features an integrated PAL analogue/digital tuner with DVB-T support that gives customers access to Freeview programming from their aerial connection. Furthermore the Slingbox PRO can control a wide range of Freeview, digital cable and satellite set-top boxes available in the UK market, including those offered by Sky, Virgin Media and Tiscali.
Like the US version, the UK version also includes four distinct A/V inputs, each with audio: Aerial, S-Video and composite video inputs and outputs as well as an HD component connection for HD set top box customers via the included HD Connect cable. The combination of inputs and outputs makes for seamless integration into current A/V systems and allows customers to connect up to three independent A/V devices and one aerial connection at one time.

Before I go for another 24 hours session of watching TV, here we have a couple of photos first:


The Slingbox PRO will retail for £199.99 inc VAT (around  285 Euro) and includes an HD component accessory called HD Connect cable (worth of 18 Euro) and will be available in the UK through Sling Media retail channel partners which include PC World, John Lewis, Carphone Warehouse and Amazon.co.uk as well as at SlingMedia.com.

Cheers ~ Arne
