Are people still using sling boxes?  These are just the the things that allow you to watch your cable box from other locations and are pretty much obsolete.

I'm going to guess SlingTV is a different product then, not usable by or tied to the boxes? That seems to be the thing they kept hammering when I still had to put up with commercials. If SlingTV is a box independent service and a SlingBox is only capable of showing an active cable subscription, then yeah, I agree it seems useless. But the cable boxes have had some form of DRM for years. I wonder what kind of agreement they must have had to allow Sling to do that?
