    Virtual Private Networks

    VPN's, do I really need one? What's a good one for traveling to St. B with my Mac laptop? Does one have to use a VPN with Slingbox on St. B?

    I'm thinking that a VPN isn't they way to go if you are only interested in allowing content to play by region shifting. The DNS solution seems better as there is less overhead. All the services are getting smarter about this and many block the popular VPN's IP addresses just as they block non-US IP addresses.

    Appears I'll be okay with SlingPlayer. Thanks.

    Kimberly has had her issues with the Sling, but it is possibly user induced.
