Share your love of television shows at home (Part 2 of 2)
In part 1 of this post, if you love TV a lot, sharing Internet TV at home makes it more enjoyable and meaningful for your family. Stream new TV channels and discover exciting television content. Here in part 2, we explain the details of setting up internet streaming at home.
There is a plethora of excellent Internet TV channels to watch: Netflix, Hulu Plus, HBO GO and more. The best deal is a subscription to Amazon Prime for TV for $99/year.
Streaming internet TV channels on your large-screen HDMI television set in the living room is quite affordable. For about $40 or so, the Roku Stick, or the Google Chromecast will do the job easily. I recommend the amazon Fire TV Stick with built-in voice remote. In the case of Google Chromecast, you have to install an app on your smartphone before you are able to select the TV channels with the smartphone.
You want a portable internet TV to watch shows as you go about your chores around the home. I recommend the Fire HD 6 tablet from Amazon. The 8Gb version goes for about $99. This is a 6-inch tablet that you carry with you at home. It will stream movies and shows as well as surf the web. Install the free Fire TV Remote App for voice control. Pressing a button will flip the TV show from the portable tablet over to the large-screen television set in the living room.
Finally the amazon version of the web site InstantWatcher is a very fast and easy way to search for streaming television content for viewing. The regular InstantWatcher web site searches for shows on Netflix, and here is the web site NASA HDTV. The book Amazon Fire TV Stick Made Easy provides an extensive guide into all the features of the Fire TV Stick.
Start with setting up the Fire TV Stick on the television set in the living room. See how you like it.
