You can watch and control your living room TV shows at any time from any location, using Internet-connected PCs, Macs, tablets and smartphones.

Sling Media’s placeshifting technology is integrated into the latest generation of set-top boxes used by DISH Network’s Hopper with Sling, which the pay TV provider unveiled at CES 2013 to wonderful acclaim.  The company recently signed an exclusive agreement with ARRIS Inc. to integrate the technology into next-generation set-top boxes and media gateways.
