1.0 out of 5 stars Does not work with Freeview, 3 Sept. 2013
By 
This review is from: Sling Media - Slingbox PRO-HD (Electronics)
To echo other comments here. The advertised DVB-T tuner does not work with UK Freeview at present. The Slingbox seems to have an issue with the number of channels contained within the COM4 multiplex (only available from full-service transmitters). You can find more information about this within the SlinbBox forum ([...] - Search for "Slingbox incompatible with UK DVB-T"

It is likely that the tuner would have worked with Freeview before more channels were recently added to the line up, and it should still work if you are in an area where you don't receive a full Freeview service (For example, if you don't get ITV3 then you are not in a full service area and the Slingbox will probably work for you).

Obviously a device which advertises itself as having a DVB-T tuner should really work with the full Freeview channel list, so if I don't hear back from Slingbox soon, I will be returning mine to Amazon.
