We live in France for some of the year, and cannot get SKY

Resolved Question:

We live in France for some of the year, and cannot get SKY tv. A friend told me that she has a 'sling box' which 'slings' her sky tv down to her laptop in France. What is this, and how do I get one?

The slingbox is a device that you connect to your cable or satellite and it streams your signal using the internet too any location that you have internet. You can then connect your computer or another slingbox to the tv in France and view the programminug.

Thanks for the link. It sounds just what I need, but how do I connect it? Does it plug into the back of the sky box, or the mains socket? Also, does my laptop need to hide it's IP address to be able to watch in France, as programmes are automatically screened out through normal channels.

Expert:  Randy SmartphoneTech replied 2 years ago.
you connect the slingbox to the sky box component out, then connect the slingbox to the internet. Sometimes you do have to hide the ip address. You can use a program calledhttp://incloak.com/
