STEP 1:

SET UP A STRONG WI-FI CONNECTION

If you'd like to stream movies and TV shows, make sure you have an up-to-date modem and router as well as Internet speeds that can handle the bandwidth of streaming content. Streaming video in Full HD requires approximately 5 Mbps download speed per device, and streaming video in 4K resolution requires 25 Mbps per device.

In order to stream content to your TV, you'll need a streaming media player. This could be a dedicated streaming device like Amazon Fire TV, Apple TV, Chromecast or Roku. Or, you could choose a multifunction device like a smart TV, smart Blu-ray player or gaming console. Check out the chart below to compare some of the most popular options.
