How to Stream Video Content to your TV
There’s never been a better time to get all of your television programming via the internet. You have the potential to save hundreds of dollars a year by transitioning away from traditional pay TV to online streaming video. Channels that were once only available through subscription to cable or satellite providers are now available online. The difference is you only pay for the channels and programming you want, and there are no contracts to sign and no equipment to rent. You can make the transition a smooth one by following these simple steps.
Step 1 Internet
Get the fastest internet in Westfield
With a Gigabit internet connection from Whip City Fiber (1,000 Mbps of download and upload speeds), you will have enough speed to stream content to multiple TVs, computers, tablets, and phones in your household.
Step 2 HD Antenna
Make sure you have the right antenna
To pick up the major networks (ABC, CBS, FOX, and NBC), along with select other channels (PBS, CW, etc.), you'll need a good HD antenna which will cost less than $40.
Step 3 Streaming Device
Pick a streaming device
If you have a Smart TV you do not need a streaming device. If you don't have a Smart TV, a streaming device will be the bridge between your internet connection and your TV. Some of the popular streaming devices are Amazon FireTV, Apple TV, Chromecast, Playstation, Roku, and Xbox.
Step 4 Streaming Service
Select a Streaming service
Your streaming device will need a service account to access movies and other content. Popular streaming services are Amazon Instant Video, Google Play, HBO Now, Hulu, iTunes, Netflix and Showtime. With these services you can view virtually any programming available from cable and satellite providers.
