How To Get Started With Streaming TV

Broadcast TV (or streaming) is the newest way to watch your favorite shows and movies. It's convenient, flexible, and offers a personalized experience that you can enjoy from almost anywhere. If you are a new user of this system, here are some tips to be able to watch the latest episodes of your favorite shows and movies.

Check your TV and internet speed

If you want to watch on a TV (rather than a tablet, laptop, or smartphone), check what type of TV you have. Most TVs made after 2014 are HD, so if you have a newer TV, it's probably HD. TVs from 2014 or even earlier are usually standard definition (SD). With the exception of Netflix, most streaming services do not offer an SD plan, so before you sign up for one of these services, make sure your TV is compatible.

HD TVs require faster internet speeds, as does 4K, the latest in television technology. Here are the internet speeds you need for streaming video:

  • Standard Definition (SD) streaming on one device: 3-4 Mbps
  • High Definition (HD) streaming on one device: 5-8 Mbps
  • 해외스포츠중계 in Ultra HD or 4K on one device: starting at 25 Mbps

It should be noted that if there are several people in the house who want to transmit at the same time, you must multiply the recommended bandwidth by the number of devices. For example, three devices streaming HD at the same time will require 15-24 Mbps.

Streaming device, smart TV or game console?

Once you have your TV and Internet connection ready, you'll need a way to access streaming services. There are several devices available, which could be grouped into three categories:

  • Dedicated streaming devices that let you watch through your TV, such as Google Chromecast, Apple TV, Roku Stick, or Amazon Fire
  • Smart TV with built-in streaming apps that can be accessed via the TV remote
  • Streaming game consoles, for example X-box One, PlayStation 4, or Nintendo Switch (some game consoles only offer certain streaming platforms)

It's a matter of personal taste when it comes to choosing your streaming device. If you have a smart TV and find that the built-in apps aren't up to the task, you can always add a streaming device to expand your options.

And if you don't want to buy a new device, most streaming services work just fine on your smartphone, tablet, or computer.
