    How does new windows slingplayer 2.0.4 connect to my slingbox

    bison88

      The old windows slingplayer I had use to connect to my slingbox directly from the internet.  I used to lookup my public ip address by running a "netstat" on the windows command prompt.  Now with the new 2.0.4 slingplayer when I run "netstat" I dont see my IP address.  It seems to go through some sort of slingmedia proxy server (deploy.akamaitechonologies.com).  Is this what the new slingplayer does?  If so why?  It would just make my connection slower because it is dependant on the proxy's network performance.
