Television is no longer a one size fits all utility. You can pick your provider based on the needs of your household. Choosing a streaming provider comes down to three things. Cost, content and devices! You can choose one or more providers to customer your streaming experience.
Once you’ve narrowed things down by channel lineup, you can start comparing features. Everyone has different needs and requirements for their service. Below, we have listed some popular features that people are looking for when picking their streaming providers.
Surround sound: Unfortunately, 5.1 audio is still pretty much unheard-of in live TV streaming, though some exceptions exist for on-demand video.
Out-of-home viewing: if you plan to take a streaming device on vacation or share your login with a relative, be aware that some services restrict this behavior.
Ad-skipping: Most streaming providers offer this feature as an additional charge on their service.
DVR: The ability to record and store shows varies from provider to provider. Some services limit your total recording hours or the amout of time the recording can be saved.
Simultaneous streams: Live TV services don’t limit how many total televisions you can set up, but they do limit the number of devices you can use at the same time. Some services let you pay extra for additional streams.
Local Channels: When it comes to saying goodbye to cable, getting access to your local networks and the prime time shows are a priority for many. Local broadcast TV networks are available over the air simply using a digital TV antenna. Some streaming services offer local broadcast affiliates in several markets.
Video quality: Most cable TV channels stream at 720p, but some services are better than others at supporting the smooth 60 frames-per-second live video that sports and news broadcasts use.
If you want to take advantage of streaming services – Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime etc. – you’ll need a way to watch on your TV. If you have a recent TV from a major manufacturer, you may not need to get anything at all. Smart TVs usually have these apps built in and wouldn’t require any additional streaming devices!
