In re: Thinking about a slingbox? Think about your broadband first.

I know a few people who’ve picked up Slingboxes with the hopes of enjoying local programming somewhere else.  As this blog post  that I came across warns, the broadband provider that is connected to the slingbox may clamp down on your bandwidth basically ruining the functionality of the Slingbox.  Word to the wise, read your terms of service and prepare for a lot of ambiguity in their language.

  1. Well poop – sounds like my genius investment in a Slingbox might just blow up in my face.

    I’ll research Comcast’s terms of service and find out what they have to say.
