Watch Your Home TV Set On Your iPhone From Any Wireless Network Connection

Many people may not be aware of a company called Sling Media that makes devices that connect to your DirecTV, cable, or other satellite providers receiver so you can watch your own television from any Internet connection. The product that makes this possible is Sling Box and it connects in between the output of your cable or satellite receivers output and your televisions input. Then it connects to the network at your house via a switch, wireless router, or the like and provides instructions on how to view remotely from any computer and many mobile devices. There is an application available from the iTunes store that will allow you to connect to the Sling Box at your home via your iPhone so you can watch your home television from your iPhone. This includes watching shows that have been recorded on your DVR, etc.
