    Slingbox for Free (with a catch)

    So my girl found this.... When I moved to my new apartment I was going to get wideband service, but it's going to cost me 50 bucks more a month or so... Worth it? I don't know. How often do we need 50mbps down and 5 mbps up? I'm currently at 20 down and 2 up. When I upload Youtube videos, I can just queue them up and wait... I don't have that many files to upload at a time. Now if it were symmetrical (50 down, 50 up, or even 10 up) I think I'd jump on it.


    Thoughts??



    Time Warner Cable will pay for your Slingbox, in exchange for love

    Time Warner Cable


    customer, your next
    Slingbox


    purchase could be on the house. Yesterday, the provider announced that it will offer full rebates to any Wideband internet subscribers who buy the $300 set-top box, as part of a promotion due to launch sometime in September. Jeffrey A. Hirsch, TWC's executive vice president and chief marketing officer, told the New York Times that the offer is geared solely toward promoting his company's $99 Wideband service, though it's hard to ignore the move's larger symbolism -- especially in light of that

    How much is the Internet compared to what you're paying now?

    How much is a Slingbox without the Internet? I'm guessing $300, since it says that's the value of it.

    I'm not sure if it's going to be worth it unless you really need the speed. You can have 1 Gbps Internet but if the server you're accessing is slow it's not going to help any, right?

    I told you like 50 bucks more. I don't think I can use Slingbox that much. Just couldn't force myself to really. It'd be a toy to show off. Nothing more I think.

    Unless I put one in my Cayman Island house. Then I could watch what they're showing. Mu hahahahaha.

    Yeah, I don't think it's worth it.

    Hey this is an off topic thread so I'm going to drift. Why didn't you tell me your store was giving away free hotdogs? :-)
