Can I rent my Slingbox to people?

Can I rent my Slingbox to people?

My cable bill has gotten so high, that I want to start renting out my additional cable boxes through Slingbox. Does anyone know if this is legal?


An HD box costs $19.95. If someone wants to view my cable box through Slingbox, I was going to upcharge them for it.


I would think it's perfectly fine because I'm paying comcast for the boxes and Slingbox has nothing to do with Comcast. It would be different if I was giving out my Comcast login - which I am not.

I don't recommend it. See http://www.comcast.com/policies/ and especially http://www.comcast.com/Corporate/Customers/Policies/SubscriberAgreement.html section 7, "USE OF SERVICES":
