Has anyone here has any clue to how this device actually work. My first impression is tht if i have one of these devices say pulg in a home say in the USA, i can then watch whever the home onwer is watching, over here on my PC (wired or wireless). Isnt that sound too good to be true even if it it $200+ in my opionion is worth every penny. Saw that in Dixon yesterday, but no time to ask the sales assistant as i was on my way to work.

I believe the idea of the sony device is similar to the one more interested in accessing TV programs broadcast in foreign countries from here(UK). I this device work, it will solve my problem. Just wonder what is the legal issue here.

You can only watch the channel that the US base station is watching - and you can't change the channel - so I'm not quite sure what problem the system solves?

You can change the channel, but may upset whoever is watching at home!!

To be able to watch whatever the home(in USA) is watching is all i need. At least i dont have to wait months for SKY to transmit the programs here.

Thanks guys.

Very many TV stations around the world also have a website which transmits programmes either live or a little while later.

In fact the BBC does this extensively for both TV and radio.
