Cable TV is great. But even with channels reaching into the thousands, there’s still NOTHING ON! Which brings us to our topic this month:
STREAMING SHOWS AND MOVIES ON YOUR TELEVISION.
Streaming content on your main television, whether it be a home theater, or media system, is a great way to enhance your cable or satellite provider offerings. You can get started with streaming content relatively easy and inexpensively.
A fast connection to the internet is required. You’ll also need a streaming device such as Apple TV, Smart TV or a capable Blu Ray player. We recommend hard wiring the devices into your home network in order to achieve the fastest possible download speeds. If this is not possible, there are several Wi-Fi options available.
Once your streaming media device is connected, there are various ways to get movies and shows on your TV. Popular options include Apple TV, Hulu, NetFlix and Amazon. Each of these providers have their advantages and disadvantages. We will be discussing these providers in more detail in a later blog.
QUALITY OF CONTENT
The quality of streaming content is excellent and is 1080p in most cases. That said, your network speed will have a huge impact with respect to smooth playback. If you find that playback is less than optimal, you can call your internet provider and have your speed increased.
