Do I need a UK TV License to watch a foreign TV using a slingbox?

This may sound like a trick question but its not. We don't have a TV license because we have no TV and do not watch live TV on our computers.
The parents - in a foreign European country - have said that we are welcome to use their slingbox to watch a favorite TV channel of ours while they are away. Technically, we can do this. Thats not the question. The question is: Do we need a UK TV license, if we do this?
We will be streaming live TV into the UK. But the slingbox and TV are in a foreign country. If it matters, the channel we want to watch isn't even available in the UK.
