Monday Night Football In The Tent




Sometimes even Sara and I are amazed at what technology can do these days. Thanks to our friends Matt and Larry, we are watching Monday night football live on our laptop, in our tent, in Utah. No, no cable or T.V. here… Here is the setup: Matt has a device called a Slingbox on his cable box in Arlington, VA. Using the broadband connection through my cell phone, we downloaded the player and setup the software. So Matt’s cable box is now sending us an image of what they are watching over the Internet down through my phone and we are now watching it on our laptop in the tent. We can even change the channels using the virtual remote control and watch something else during the commercials! Basically, we can see what they are watching on their TV through the Internet on our laptop.
