                         Complement Your "LIVE" Antenna TV With Streaming TV 

 

                               Want Even More TV ?

    In conjunction with an antenna, if you have a broadband internet connection, you can get even more programming directly on your TV with an Internet TV Box like the RoKu Box, GoogleTV box and Apple TV box. Many new Blu Ray DVD players, Wii Boxes, X-Boxes and even TV's have internet boxes built into them. We like the top rated RoKu Box. With an $9 a month NetFlix or Hulu subscription, you will have more TV shows and movies than you can watch. The worst thing is deciding what you want to watch. These boxes also receive many other internet channels and even some will do YouTube. Or, if you enjoy computers, you can connect your laptop or a desktop to your TV for an awesome "cable box". You will be surprised what TV programming you can stream off the net nowadays.  And you can even Jail Break an Apple TV to open more even more TV than you can watch.

                     What Is Internet or Streaming TV?

    Internet TV is what its name implies, watching TV streaming from the internet by way of an internet TV box or Smart TV that allows the streaming TV to be viewed on your regular HDTV-TV. IPTV (internet protocol television) TV programming is delivered via a broadband connection. Which is probably the future of television as bandwidth increases. Internet TV is catching on big. The college crowd is already up on watching TV on-line. TV is more on-demand with internet TV you watch the shows, movies when you want, you don't have to watch what's on now.  Most networks and cable channels have their shows available to stream (check the channel's website), albeit it may not be the current program airing now they may soon stream after a lag period. Most network TV shows are streamed very shortly after they air, if not the next day. For instance, if you like cable TV shows like The National Geographic Channel, HGTV, Sifi etc., they stream many of their shows now,  as do the major TV networks.  So, you really aren't missing anything, just viewing it a bit later than air time.  PBS streams.
 

                How Do I Get Internet & Streaming TV?

  To receive and view streaming internet TV on your regular TV or HDTV, you will need a broadband internet connection of at least 3.0 Mbps or above, higher is better, no dial up here. It is also desirable to have a wireless router for your internet connection, as these internet boxes work via your wireless connection. This makes it very easy because you don't have to run any wires from your router to the internet box next to your TV. Top rated and best RoKu (www.roku.com) HD box will run about $49 to $99 for an HD box. Many devices have built-in internet TV like Blu-Ray DVD players, Wii-Game Boxes, X-Box 360, PS3 and even many newer SMART TV's have internet TV and apps built in so you may already have one. (www.apple.com/appletv) but your stuck with I-Tunes, and limited content for now, but Apple TV is investing in Apple TV so it's better now.  If you're a real TV videophile, you can add a dedicated computer to your HDTV via an HDMI, DVI or other cable. You'll have a big computer monitor for surfing the net from the sofa or easy chair, don't forget the wireless mouse/keyboard. See the device list below.

    What Can I Watch With Streaming TV?  

    There are thousands of channels with video content available from the channel store on the #1 rated  RoKu Box, Similar channels are available on the other brand boxes.  

   Netflix  and Hulu and Amazon Prime TV have thousands of movies and TV shows to stream. Most internet TV channels are FREE but ad supported. Some channels may charge a small monthly/yearly fee, you will have to determine if it is worth it for that channel or not. Try Hulu out on your computer to see what it's all about watch TV shows for Free. There are many more sites for TV and Movies. YouTube is also a must.
