What you to watch whatever is currently playing on your cable or satellite TV system at home via an internet connection?

I heard a radio commercial about this system today but I forget the name.

I heard that it was developed by someone who always wanted to follow his Bay Area, CA sports teams broadcast games by watching them over the internet on his laptop.

What is the name of this system?

GDPR? That's a regulation for the European Union. But, if you collect data from customers or employees within the EU, then you need to know about GDPR and make sure your organization is compliant by May 2018. Check out our preparation checklist to make sure you're on track today!

To actually watch what is currently being watched at your home, SlingBox is by far the system of choice -- easy to use;  widely supported; and works very well.    I can't think of any competitor that I'd recommend.

But if you just want to watch the same CONTENT, but don't care if it's actually being watched at home, there are MANY alternatives that let you watch most network programming.    Hulu is the most well known & probably has the best selection;  but there are many others -- Fancast, Joost, etc., as well as the networks themselves.

There are far too many to list -- those, and the networks (CBS, Fox, etc.) are the major sites that stream programs.   (some for free;  some for a modest cost)

If you really want a more comprehensive list, just Google "streaming TV programs"

If you want alternatives to SlingBox, check out Orb ... or just Google "Slingbox and Orb alternatives"
