Read Brad’s Story - Watch Parents' Cable TV from Inside the Dorm and Around Campus
Brad A. is a ’10 student at Stanford University. He lives in a dorm on campus. His parents’ home is 50-milage away in San Jose, California. Being a San Jose Sharks fan for 5 years, Brad does not want to miss any Sharks’ games. Thanks to device installed at his parents' home, Brad can now watch and record San Jose Shark’s games whenever he has access to the Internet, including when he roams around the campus with his WiFi enabled laptop between classes.
Monsoon allows colleague students, like Brad, to view and control their parents’ cable box or DVR from any broadband-connected PC equipped with Player software, which comes with the Monsoon TV place-shifting device. Brad can watch the San Jose Sharks games from the dorm and around Stanford campus without paying additional cable fees or installing TV at the dorm.
“The Monsoon TV place-shifter is a must-have for college-bound students,” says Brad. “This device allows me to piggyback on my parents' Comcast HD cable and have access to premium channels and local sports. Students living on campus like me should consider foregoing expensive cable service for a one-time fee of Monsoon TV place-shifter, to watch their home cable on their PC.”
