I have both a Sling Box and the Sling Adapter connected to my DISH722k.  Moist of the time I listen and/or watch via my Android devices.  Once in a while I am at a personal computer that is not mine, but I am allowed to use it.  However, I have absolutely NO administrator privileges.  So, when I try to connect via Slingbox or DISH Anywhere websites, it wants to download software, which I can't do.  I do seem to recall that it is possible to watch through the Facebook website.  Again, I am restricted from that sites.  Does anybody happen to know of any other ways to view it on a computer this way?  Normally, I would consider attaching a USB jump drive with software, but that is also not an option, so any other helpful suggested would be appreciated.

Both devices require some form of installed software so you're effectively shut out.
