The Slingbox 500 is a more advanced set-top device offered by Sling Media that allows users to share a single TV source with multiple other locations. It allows users to view their home cable package from a variety of other devices, virtually anywhere in the world. The 500 uses a WiFi connection for Internet access, and it connects to a cable box or satellite receiver with composite, component, or HDMI cables. Users can then access what they normally would from home by using SlingPlayer software on whichever device they want. Purchasers should note that the SlingPlayer software has an additional cost and must be purchased separately. Most other devices with which the Slingbox is compatible have a separate "remote control" and info interface that allows navigation from afar. Note that this model does "sling" 1080p content.
