TALKERS Consumer Electronics Show coverage by radio consultant Holland Cooke
You might already have a Slingbox. I do and I love it. I can watch whatever’s on my TV or DVR back home, anywhere, on my computer, iPad or iPhone. DVR is timeshifting, Slingbox is place-shifting. It’s not a service with a recurring fee. It’s a small box.
New here this week? Sling TV, in-cahoots-with Dish Network. It’s an internet TV service, and it includes ESPN, TBS, TNT, CNN, and other networks. $20 per month, no contract, cancel any time. This is just the newest streaming video system, so-called “Over the top TV.” The biggest one is Roku, which I also have; an inexpensive box or dongle with no recurring fee. Others are Google Chromecast, Apple TV, and Amazon Fire TV.
