    Great ideas! I plan on giving my dad a Sling Adapter so he can watch his Rockies’ games live on his Android while he’s away from home on business trips. He can actually watch any of his TV programming and DVR recordings on the go, but he’s a baseball kind of guy. I work for DISH Network and they’re offering free Slings to new and existing subscribers.
