Slingbox update lets you invite Facebook friends to watch your cable in a browser


If you’re an inveterate placeshifter and have the internet bandwidth to spare, there’s no longer any reason to keep your cable TV feeds all to yourself. A Watch update has arrived for the Slingbox 350 and 500 media streamers that includes Facebook integration, letting you invite your friends to view your Slingbox streams on a browser when you’re not (only one connection is allowed at a time). Along with no doubt more “likes,” the update also brings improved zoom controls to handle aspect ratios like anamorphic and letter box, a relocated pause button and advanced device search during setup. You can start inviting your pals on the social network now, but you may want to warn them: you can interrupt their viewing, but they can’t interrupt yours.
