Sling goes under before I can buy one . . . or enough other people

 I love the idea of watching live or TiVo’ed content anywhere in the world with internet access.  Trouble is, it costs too much for most people so Sling decide to give in.  Oh well . . .

EchoStar’s $380 million purchase of Sling Media once again raises the question of whether a consumer TV-device company can exist as a standalone entity. History has not been kind to such companies trying to break out from the startup field. Akimbo anyone? TiVo has also certainly seen its share of ups and downs (mostly downs).
