    Overseas viewing?

    flo4wyo

      I am currently overseas. I would like to know if it is possible to buy a slingbox, have it set up to a friends tv back in the states, and be able to watch tv programs on my laptop? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

          The short answer is yes.  I live in Germany and use slingbox to watch cable back in the US.  You need someone a little tech savy to set the unit up in the us.  I would recommend having them order a seperate box for you and put it in a back room somewhere that it will not be messed with.  If you connect to his box then you are stuck watching his TV.
