    Is a home network upload speed of 2 Mbps enough for HD quality viewing?

      I'm thinking about getting a Slingbox for when I head to school in Milwaukee. I primarily want it to watch out of market sporting events in HD. I'm from Minnesota and want to watch the Vikings, Twins, Timberwolves, Wild, and Gophers in HD without having to pay for cable or other subscription services. If it matters, I plan to watch primarily on the SlingPlayer app through my Android and on my Roku.

       

      Anyway, I know Slingbox recommends home network upload speeds of 3 Mbps. That said, the max internet providers can offer at my house in Minnesota is 2 Mbps. Is this enough to get the HD quality I desire? Or should I not waste my money on the Slingbox?
