Since DISH Network where I work has purchased Sling it's been great. This is great technology that is enables you to watch TV where ever. I first used this at work and I was hooked. I now watch TV on my Ipad all over. This is great at the park riding home on the light rail. If you're a person on the go this works great too. Every chance I get I can pull up my TV and watch a recorded show.
