I think this would be better than the Flo Tv just because it dont have alot channels and certain areas no service...Dont have that problem with Slingbox
Would I be able to have a guide on my phone to list all the channels like on my DirectV
thanks for the help
You need either a Slingbox Solo, HD, Pro, or the older AV or original Slingbox. You will of course need the Slingbox Mobile for Blackberry at the price quoted on SlingMedia's website.
The Slingbox catcher is not what you need in order to send your DirectTV to your Blackberry Bold 9700.
You will be able to see the same guide on your phone as what you see on your DirecTV since the Slingbox is transmitting the signal from your DirectTV box over the internet to your phone or computer.
You will also need a router at home and an internet connection at home.
I use the SlingPlayer Mobile for Blackberry on my Bold 9700 and it works very well over my carrier's 3G network as well as over WiFi. I have both the Slingbox Original (which is no longer sold but you can probably buy it second hand) and the Slingbox Solo at my home which I connect to.
