Your a mobile PT, why not have a mobile TV?

man holding TVIf you take a travel physical therapy job far enough away from your home that you need to set up housing, one thing you will have to deal with is setting up cable while you are there if you want it. There are companies that pay for your cable and that makes the cost easier to deal with. Some companies will even set it up for you, but that is still a pain waiting around for the cable guy all afternoon.

But there is an alternative. Slingbox.

Slingbox is fairly new (its been around a couple years already), but lately it hit me how awesome it could be for a traveling PT.You basically hook up the Slingbox to your TV at your home and it lets you watch your TV at home on the Internet through your laptop, PC or SmartPhone, no matter where you are.

Here is a video about it.

If you have it you don’t have to deal with the headache or cost of setting up cable at your housing while on assignment. It is definitely worth checking out.

If you have used or are already using it during your travel physical therapy jobs let us all know how you like it.
