Slingbox keeps pushing its vision of subscription-free video streaming, with the new Slingbox M2 pushing your home cable to your phone or tablet. The new box hooks up to cable or satellite receivers, DVRs, Blu-ray or DVD players, or pretty much any other source with a video output, and squirts the content from them across the internet to Sling's apps for iOS, Android, and other platforms, in up to 1080p Full HD resolution.

I have been a Slingbox user since 2006 and still use it to stream my DVR content to all of my mobile devices.

Slingbox PRO-HD Freeview Review

Sling Media's Slingbox PRO-HD for the European market has been a long time coming, two years in fact, though the streaming media market has largely left its niche alone in the meantime.  As with the US model, the PRO-HD promises to take your SD and HD video sources - cable TV box, DVR, DVD player or even CCTV hardware - and squirt it over the internet; however, this new version also includes a Freeview tuner to add free-to-air digital TV to that list.  Check out the full SlashGear review after the cut.
