Hard times in the economy have forced many families to cut back on unnecessary spending. If you are looking to cut back on monthly spending or simply looking to save a few dollars, consider cutting the cable cord or digital provider and getting Internet TV. In some cases, Internet TV can save families 50% compared to the prices they are used to through digital cable or satellite. If making the change is something you are ready for, here is what you need to know to get started:
Buy a set top box
A set top box is a device that streams content in the form of video through your high-speed Internet connection. It allows you to play media through different applications such as Netflix, Hulu Plus, Youtube and ESPN just to name a few. Of course, you will have to pay for subscriptions to some applications (like ESPN, Netflix or HBO) but it is usually much cheaper than any cable package out there. Most Set top boxes can be purchased from electronic stores like Best Buy, Fry's Electronics, Target or even Wal-Mart. Choose a box that fits your budget. One of the best on the market (for the price) is the Roku Box that allows users to add channels through its built in app store making it easier to find free television. The Roku currently starts at $49.99 and comes with a remote and a 30-day money back guarantee. Apple TV, WD Live, Amazon Fire & Google TV are other options and they all have a slight difference in the range of capabilities.
Enjoy a whole new world of media
Internet streaming is the future of television and a set top box will take you to the next level. Enjoy the ability to stream media from any computer on your network wirelessly and watch your favorite shows flawlessly. Surf the web from the comfort of your own living room and check your Facebook page without getting up from the couch. You can now watch movies without the hassle of leaving the house or ordering from your cable provider, all for an amazingly low price. Play games on your television and listen to the endless music collection from your computer. The possibilities are endless when it comes to Internet TV and it is now more affordable than ever.
With so many great options out there, you are bound to find the right set top box for you. Cut the cable and enjoy a whole new world of digital media and save a bunch of money in the process!
