Office clean-out continues: Slingbox Classic is up for grabs


Slinglbox_classicNow what am I going to do with two Slingboxes? Sure, I could stream multiple channels of content, but I don’t want to be greedy. Besides there’s only so many times I can watch "High School Musical 2". No, I’d rather share the Sling experience with a jkOTR reader, so here’s your chance to win a barely used Slingbox Classic. [Sorry, I’m keeping the Slingbox PRO that’s connected to my HDTV receiver!]

You know the drill; just leave a comment in this thread and my kids will pick a random winner on Friday. You can try to be clever in your comment, but I’ll be honest, they won’t read ’em all! ;) You have until the end of the day on Thursday to enter. This might not be popular with some, but I’m going to limit this one to our readers in the U.S. and Canada since Sling supports those countries and we’ve got the whole NTSC thing going on here for television broadcasts. Hey don’t complain to me: go hit up your government and fuss about broadcast standards, ‘k?

I’m hearing impaired and would love to get the Slingbox so I can figure out how to set up streaming with closed captioning. The vast majority of stuff out there does not play well at all with subtitles or Closed Captioning…others require a lot of tinkering or workarounds. The gift of the Slingbox would at least save the purchase cost if accessibility attempts prove unfruitful.

My 7 year old daughter has already watched HSM2 4 times. Daddy (me) video taped it. Oh, yes, I’m interested in that Slingbox, too!

Dear Kevin’s kids:
I know I probably won’t be picked but I thought I would recommend a series for you to read. It’s call Artimis Fowl by Eoin Colfer. It’s about a 12 year old super criminal that tries to steal gold from leprachans. There are five books in the series and I’m really anjoying them. If I do win I’ll write 25 interesting facts about Canada.
Thanks for listening.

I hit up my government and they replied:

1. What does ‘hit up’ mean?
2. What’s NTSC?
3. What’s slingbox?
4. What’s a broadcasting standard?

PS You don’t need to include me in your prize thingy (I don’t live in any of the countries you mentioned), I just wanted to reply to one of your posts today.

This would be great for my pregnant wife. So help her out ok? Thanks.


Hello there kids. Pick me…pretty please with a cherry on top of the double scoop ice cream cones your Dad will buy you.

Gabriel Lowe

If you pick me, your Dad will take you to get double scoop ice cream cones!


Tofel’s kids Rock!

(I just thought that brown-nosing works no matter what age you are)

Seriously, though, this is tops in my daily blog reading. Keep up the great work. It is appreciated.
