Default Slingbox TV, Anyone?

Waiting patiently for our new CB to arrive replacing our big ol Dutchstar that has served us well for the past 8 years.
We have a Winegard Traveler satellite dish on the DS and it will go with the bus. Technology has changed a lot in the last 8 years and I would like to eliminate satellite TV completely with something else. One device that keeps popping up is the Slingbox.
Anyone use or have used a Slingbox and if so, how does it work? The website claims it will sling your current home TV subscription to anywhere in the world with a decent internet connection.

Thank you for your valued comments.

We use SlingBox all the time to watch our home DirecTV. Works great. It excels at taking advantage of low-bandwidth situations. The image degrades gracefully down to very low bandwidths, which produces very blocky, but still watchable pictures.
