If you think Slingbox has the content providers running scared, they haven't begun to realize the threat a new technology presents.

There's a new service from TVU (http://www.viidoo.com/en/index.php) allows ANYBODY with a broadband internet connection and video capture card to broadcast ANY content. The service appears to be approximately two months old. Think of it as TV-Napster.

Right now, ABC, CBS, NBC, FOX, HBO and other channels are being streamed by anonymous users to the world via ViiDoo's interface. Quality varies from channel to channel.
