Anyone have one of these things, or know someone who does? I don't always trust Amazon reviews.

I ask because I'm back in Atlanta for the week, and if the travel thing keeps happening, there's a lot of Kings games that I'm going to miss. Most people probably wouldn't think that was a bad thing, but I paid for the damn package so I'd like to watch the damn games. And my understanding is that I can hook this sucker up and watch whatever is on my TV from any computer with a good internet connection. I was initially intrigued, then turned off by the fact that they don't seem to work with Blackberries, which is what they gave me at my newish job. But I'm starting to think it might be a worthwhile investment.

Yeah, I got the Pro version so I can watch Angels games in Boston. I like it a lot, and it prevents me from dealing with the crooks at MLB.

It works pretty well, but you NEED to have a good upload speed (500K is probably a good floor if you wanna be able to see the puck) at home to get a decent picture.

They're also good for those of us in different time zones, in case you miss some show you wanna watch, it's on in LA later.

Oh yeah, and unless your Blackberry has a decent 3G connection, you're not going to be able to pull in the Sling stream. I've got a Blackjack with 3G and it works pretty well over that.

Hey, Marcus, thanks. If you come back and see this, could you email me at I have a couple of questions for you about this. Thanks.
