The Slingbox can be used anywhere, not just the UK.

It's now down to around £105-£130 depending on outlet.

I think you may be initially thinking of a wireless type device to relay television programmes, which can be done in this case with the above. See:

If I buy Slingbox on my immenent visit to UK, can I connect to my PC in Crete & watch UK TV?

Ref crete,
The slingbox would need to be connected to a uk based tv set up before returning to crete going by pineman100 s link
"With Slingbox connected to a UK home TV setup, you can use SlingPlayer (the Slingbox software) to watch TV, change channels, take control and even record on your home TV recording equipment, over the Internet.
