Have you got a 3G phone or one of the newer phones that support HSDPA (High Speed Downlink Packet Access)?

Sky by mobile are offering the deal below for just £5 per month which sounds like great value, but the biggest catch with the offer below, is that Sky offer a "Made for mobile" package, which means the channels and shows are repeated on a loop for you to enjoy whenever you want. Doh!, who wants to watch a repeated game of football or a show????

Honestly, there is a better way and it’s not with Sky Mobile…. if you do a bit of research, there is a far better way of viewing your TV (not just sky) and it’s called the SlingBox.

The Slingbox is a TV streaming device that enables consumers to remotely view their cable, satellite, or personal video recorder (PVR) programming from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection, or a 3G or HSDPA mobile phone.

The advantages of the Slingbox are not just limited to watching tv on your mobile phone, because you can watch tv now from your computer or laptop anywhere in th world, as long as you have an internet connection.

So there you have it. why pay Sky £5 a month when for a once off price you can have Slingbox forever and use it anywhere on any device?

I’ve included some links to the Slingbox site and to the site discussed above.

    Hi Mick
    Sky are not the only broadcasters attempting to fleece the masses.  Back here in SA SABC are also attempting the same thing.  Crappy programs costing a mint, that then repeated every twenty minutes.  Apparently the SA video stream is all about getting ready for DVB broadcasting.  I think I will keep watching my TV on a TV thank you very much!!

    Daylight robbery. When you eventually get fast internet (and I don’t mean 512K or 1MB or 2MB), I am talking 8MB and above, then your TV needs can change, and you can download the shows you want to see, rather than rely on shit broadcasting such as SABC… (I am surpised the ******* have not changed the name of that yet!)…
