So it seems that lots of folk are interested in Slingbox and Kuwait. If you have any specific questions feel free to shoot over your questions to slingbox @godwinsq8 .com.
Let me say that we’ve been using ours over here for almost two years now and it’s one of it best tech investment we’ve ever made.
Our Slingbox resides in Kansas City, MO and is attached to our Tivo and then to Comcast cable. Not a huge fan of Comcast but they seem to be getting the job done. On the Kuwait side of things we’ve used their little Sling Catcher boxes, the sling player stand alone software for Windows, and connecting straight through our browser. We have also used the Slingbox application for both Windows Phone 7 and Android (Samsung Galaxy Tab 10.1 and the Kindle Fire). All work but our best connection has been to go directly through the internet and view in a browser. Navigating can be a bit of an issue that way but its nothing that’s insurmountable. We’ve also found that the bare minimum speed is 2Mbs but that with at least 4Mbs you can get HD content to stream fairly reliably. All in all it works like a charm – in Kuwait, Saudi, Iraq, Jordan, Dubai, Germany, Amsterdam – where ever. I would suppose that the opposite would be true that you could stream crappy local TV somewhere else but why in the world would you want to do that? Anyways, it works, its reliable, its generally a good picture – even on Kuwait’s internet, and we’d be crazy by now if all we had was AFN or God forbid – local TV.
