I have been wanting to get a slingbox to watch tv away from home. I have Att u-verse currently. It is a joke really. To view thier app you have to have a higher tier plan ( the u-300) and it's not even live tv. It's predetermined downloads. So I am thinking of either canceling u-verse and getting direct tv more channels and way cheaper. And adding a slingbox. I guess my question is, is slingbox worth the investment? It is 180 for the lower sd version and 300 for the supposed hd version. And then another 29.99 for the app in the app store.
