  1. How does slingbox not end up in a monster lawsuit?

    Let me give you just one example:

    Premium cable sports packages (Center Ice, League Pass, et al) in their TOS frequently use geographic black outs. This is largely to protect the distribution rights of the local cable sports network (who supply the actual programming). This enables bypassing those terms of service.

    I would also imagine it violates the TOS of your basic cable or satellite contract.

  2. Doesn’t Sling become obsolete when IP-based fixed-mobile convergence gets any traction? Of course that’s a ways (couple years) away, but Sling probably goes the way of TiVO when that actually takes off, right? Or am I way off? Would love to hear your thoughts.
