Infographic: Slingbox users are watching live sports on the go

sling-media-logo-courtesy-sling-media-inc1In November, we published an infographic from Slingbox detailing how its users Sling. Now, Sling Media has begun publishing a weekly list on the Slingbox blog of the top 10 sporting events and top 10 TV shows being accessed by Slingbox owners and those who use devices and services like Dish’s Hopper, which utilizes built-in Sling technology.

The first infographic is below, and not surprisingly, it shows that people love using it to watch sports. In a recent episode of Bill Simmons’ popular podcast ‘The B.S. Report,’ Simmons rehashes a story about a dilemma he faced: watching his beloved New England Patriots take on the Denver Broncos in the AFC Championship game or attend his daughter’s soccer game. His solution? Watching the game on the Slingbox app while at his daughter’s soccer game. Problem solved.

Slingbox was the first device to truly capture the idea of ‘TV everywhere’ and it will be interesting to see how its users’ habits change as more entertainment options are available on the go.
