After having choppy issues with video and audio in Beijing, my wife and I have had a much better experience with the Slingbox in both Chongqing City and Guangzhou. Unfortunately we were so busy we did not have a chance to watch too much local TV using our place-shifting devices and basically we just had CNN or any soccer match on in the room as background noise.
While the Beijing and Chongqing City high-speed Internet connections were free, I had to buy a week’s worth of Internet access at our Guangzhou hotel at 600 yuan! That’s $40 which is still less than the American hotels that charge for Internet (usually $9.95-$12.95 per day). Hopefully I’ll have enough time to Sling during my time here.
