Yes. As long as you have the internet connection speed you need. I personally have 5mbps (don't ask what that stands for but 10 is the highest) and I get great video streaming through my wi-fi.

with the Sony there is no need for a Sling box but if the slingbox has HDMI cables I don't see why not you'd have to set up the Slingbox through the Sony internet connection though

answer 2
The Sony Internet TV Bluray player is equipped with HDMI connection for input and output. The added device (sling box) would need to have an available HDMI connection in order to be used. This is the main requirement for using the SITV Bluray play with such devices.

Question

I have my Tv mounted on the wall with my components in a closet behind the TV

I am very interested in purchasing this unit but if it does not offer BlueTooth or cannot receive a signal behind a wall I am not sure what options I have. Today I use a Harmony remote with infrared extender. does this device have an extender?

You don't run it through the blu ray player. Run it through the TV. the Sony system is made to surf the net & watch movies, etc. off of the net.

Question

Can I connect it to my Clear internet modem directly via ethernet cable, or do I have to use wifi?

Depending on which Clear modem you have, you can do it either way. The standard Clear modems don't have wi-fi connectivity, only the 4G WiMax connection for the Internet service, but there is one modem which also has the wi-fi built in. For best results either way, and connectivity with more than a single device at a time in the case of the wired modems, you should look into a router to go with it. See recommended products for the router I have, along with a Clear wired modem, the same Sony Blu-ray player with Google TV, and a Sony Bravia KDL46EX710 TV. The Blu-ray player can connect to the 5GHz side of the router, while most other devices use the 2.4GHz, making LAN connections much more efficient. In terms of connecting through Clear, that's up to your location and how/where you have your modem set up.
