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.

This is gut-wrenching hilarious. Sort of, "in your face."

Like you say, just like Napster. It will almost undoubtedly suffer the same fate. Still, the irreverence of it all is kind of amusing.
