    The slingbox program/software (as I understand it) is downloaded onto your computer. In the States, you hook up the Slingbox to a television with cable. That tv has to be dedicated to the Slingbox. Then, with the software, you can access your Slingbox from where ever you are and watch the cable tv on your computer.

    Well, overseas you do get American television. There's AFN on all of the bases and depending on where you are there may be some American programming on the local cable. I'm in Korea and we get a good bit of American shows on tv, plus there is one satellite system that is really good.

    so you would have to hook up this Slingbox box to a tv here stateside for ever and ever amen (or at least for however long you want to use it). Can the tv you hook it up to still be used to watch tv on if the Slingbox is in use by you over seas?

    I'm guessing you hook it up to a family memebers tv here that is already running cable?
