Default SlingMobile is awesome

I have used SlingMobile in my last four phones (TouchPro, TouchPro 2, DroidX, Rezound) and the app really kicks major butt in the Rezound using 4g.

I have the newest HD Slingbox and with 4g service the picture is outstanding.

I have two different inputs I can select from, standard cable and an HD cable box. If I use the standard cable input, a viewer at home can be watching a different channel than I am watching but the picture is lower quality.

I even get perfect TV reception while driving down the road in my truck. My Wife watched a movie in HD HBO on demand while we drove on a 3 hour trip last week.

Do you have unlimited data? Curious to know the bandwidth usage.

Yes, I have unlimited data.

It would be virtually unuseable (same as Netflix) with most tiered data plans.

Essentially it allows you to stream your home cable feed and/or DVR recorded items to your phone.

I have never used anywhere near the amount of data that a lot of the posters here use every month.

Last month, I used less than 4 gigs so I would have been fine even on my Wife's 4gig tiered plan.

I don't believe data hogs are what caused tiered data anyway, I attribute it to Verizons greed.

By the way, I have had unlimited data since the first day it was available years ago and I also have the unlimited 4g hot spot so you can KMA with that attitude........

Nice system, how much was the whole setup? And to my Michigan friend, please take down the logo if you're going to consistently work interactions in that manner, I don't want people to think all Wolverines are like that.

I think my high def Slingbox was around $300, but there are cheaper models that work fine also. You need a router in the system, but I think everybody has one of those nowdays.
