Default Slingbox Questions (beginner)

I just got cable TV in the house and I had some questions. What exactly is a slingbox?
All I know about is you can get your cable subscription via the internet at another location.
I wanted to know exactly how it worked and the differences between the many models that are being sold (Sling Media 350, 500, older Slingbox Solo, Slingbox HD?

Thanks a lot!

Here is a quick copy paste from my Google Dictionary plugin.

The Slingbox is a TV streaming device that enables users to remotely view their home's cable, satellite, or personal video recorder (PVR) programming from an Internet-enabled computer with a broadband Internet connection.
