From the Manufacturer

Works with all cable and satellite providers:

  • AT&T U-verse
  • Bright House Networks
  • Cablevision Systems
  • Charter Communications
  • Comcast Xfinity
  • Cox Communications
  • DIRECTV
  • Dish Network
  • Time Warner
  • Verizon FiOS
  • . ..and all others.

Have cable or satellite? You need a Slingbox.

Take the shows, games, and teams you love with you, wherever you go. Whether you are in another room or across the globe, you can be sure that your shows are on.

Slingbox 500

Watch every channel on your television, on any device, like your phone, tablet, or laptop—LIVE. It works over WiFi as well as 3G and 4G cellular networks without restrictions. It even works internationally.

And now Slingbox 500 makes your home TV viewing experience even more enjoyable with an on-screen TV Gallery for easy program discovery, integrated YouTube channels, and live sports scores and statistics.

If you’re a die-hard sports fan who travels, the Slingbox 500 is a must-have. The extra channels and coverage you’re already paying for are all available without having to worry about 'blackouts', device restrictions, or extra monthly fees. Plus, the Sports Gallery features all the games that are on at any given time, including live scores and statistics to let you track multiple games while you’re watching your favorite team.

If it’s on your TV, It’s on.

Easy to get started

It’s your TV, live or recorded—in up to full HD 1080p resolution. It connects to your home’s Internet router via WiFi or Ethernet. You connect to your cable or satellite set-top box via HDMI and component cables and the signal passes through to your TV. You can also connect Slingbox 500 to your DVR, DVD, Blu-ray Disc player/recorder, or a video security camera. Integrated and external IR emitters give you the ability to control these devices remotely.

Setup is simple and once you’re done, you’ll be able to view your TV remotely from a whole host of devices (phones*, tablets*, PC/Mac, streaming devices*) using our Slingplayer app. All with no monthly fees.

Make your TV smarter

The Slingbox 500 has an intuitive on-screen interface. The gallery view replaces your traditional program guide with a fun and easier way to find your shows on your big screen TV. You can also set up your favorite channels and see trending shows based on Twitter. Experience it your way.

You’ll see new show recommendations and Rotten Tomatoes movie ratings. Plus you have access to thousands of movies with the Blockbuster On Demand app.

Also features integrated YouTube Web Gallery, contextual YouTube video recommendations, and a stand-alone YouTube app.

Delivered to all your devices

You’ll be able to watch your TV on any device—phones*, tablets*, PC/Mac, streamingboxes*—with the free Slingplayer app, available to download from various app stores.You can also connect to a DVD, Blu-ray player/recorder or video security camera. The integrated and external IR emitters give you the ability to control these devices remotely.

True TV Anywhere - no restrictions

When we say 'watch your TV anywhere' we mean it, literally. Many companies promise 'TV anywhere' but they only deliver a subset of your channels and they probably don’t work internationally. And often, there are strings attached. So ditch the myriad of apps and patchwork solutions. Only Slingbox gives you control of all of your channels and shows, live or recorded, from one app.

The Experience You're Not Getting

'TV Anywhere' is what everyone wants but only Slingbox provides. Only Slingbox delivers 100% of the channels that you are paying for, right to you anywhere in the world on any device. Your current service may offer something similar, but it's not close to the complete experience you'd get with a Slingbox.

Works with your streamer

If you have a Slingbox, you can pair a streaming device like Apple TV, Chromecast, Fire TV, or Roku with a second television and watch your home TV, live or recorded—whether you’re in another room, in your hotel room, or in your vacation home.

*Slingplayer for mobile devices is required. Available for free in the Apple App Store, Google Play, Amazon Appstore, and Windows Store.

The player software is now ad-infested. You have to view an ad before you an watch, and while watching occasionally an ad pops up. Horrible, completely ruins the viewing experience.

Slingbox has decided to inject flashing ads on 1/3 of the desktop ap without anyway of removing or opting out. Having paid for the device and payng for my cable now I'm forced to endure to watch a flashing ad and smaller signal from my home. Will be throwing slingbox in trash and buying different product.

I was about to buy a sling box but why would I pay 200-300 to have them put a bunch if ads on my tv? It's too bad, sounds like everyone that owns a sling box really got hosed. They are even writing articles about how bad it is. Just search "zatznotfunny" and slingbox-ads.

As you will see from all recent reviews Sling have added adverts to the player software thereby ruining the viewing experience. Until these are removed I cannot recommend this product.

Product now includes banner ads in the player app taking up valuable real estate. Don't but this if you want to watch your cable on your desktop. The mobile apps seems fine

UPDATE 3/27/2015
Slingbox now with Ads
I don't usually put updates on the top of my reviews, but this one fundamentally changes the viewing experience for a great portion of the slingbox community. Since this month (March 2015), Slingbox decided to push banner ads to users of both Slingplayer for Web and Desktop Slingplayer (These are the free viewers that probably 99% of people use). The introduction of ads has been a great shock to the user base, especially those who have been using the product ads free for years until now. Ads appear when first starting up (similar to other services such as YouTube) giving you an option to skip after a few seconds of viewing, then in normal screen mode(i.e. not full screen mode), ads appear on the bottom of the screen and change the new layout of the screen such that the actual viewing screen size is smaller. In full screen mode, the ads are not present. (See my pictures posted below) While the new ads are universally disliked, they are clearly implemented to enhance the Slingbox revenue stream and their addition has met quantum levels of dissatisfaction (See all new 1 star reviews on Amazon). I personally also found the ads highly distasteful and the management decision to add them regrettable. This is an unfortunate move by Slingbox and your individual level of comfort with this will be tested. Although I would add that this change makes an easy target for competitors to differentiate themselves.

Please note this applies to ALL Slingbox models. There are several situation where there may be no other alternative to Slingbox (competition is currently non-existent). For these cases you should consider the cheaper Slingbox M1 version ahead of the Slingbox 500/SlingTV.

Sling just added ads all over Slingplayer Desktop. No warning and no way to turn them off. Now you have to look at these BIG bright ads that are irrelevant while trying to playback TV from your Slingbox. I would have never bought one if I knew they would do this!

BTW, Sling is notes for removing any negative feedback from their community website. This is a heavy handed company that does not like criticism!
