Multiple viewing locations can enjoy streamed content from your Slingbox. Include family or friends into the television viewing experience using your SlingPlayer account. By sharing access to your SlingPlayer account, you can allow a second viewer or group of viewers to watch the same content you are watching from the main Slingbox at home.
