(KSL News) -- New technology makes local t-v available anywhere there's an internet connection.
Slingbox connects your laptop to your local channels, no matter where you are in the world. An onscreen remote lets you channel surf your local stations -- or local stations from anywhere across the globe.
So far, the system has lots of fans -- it's making all sorts of high tech ten lists.
Conrad Hyler, Best Buy: "If you're in San Diego and you have Cox cable you can be in Pittsburgh and watch Cox cable. You can be in Mexico and watch a padre's game."
The system costs 250 dollars for the Slingbox. Once you've got it, there are no monthly fees.
