Take control of your TV experience through streaming
We all know change is hard sometimes. We like the way things are. Making a change gets us out of our comfort zones and may require us to do things differently. But with all the adjustments and changes we’ve had to make recently, we’ve proven that we can adapt and learn new ways of doing things, especially if it can save us money.
If you’re still paying for cable or satellite TV each month, no matter who your provider is, you’ve likely seen frequent rate increases for those service over the last few years. Unfortunately, that trend is only going to continue. Have you heard that there is a better way to watch TV that can save you money over traditional cable?
What is streaming TV?
Cable and satellite companies are no longer the only way to get great TV shows or movies. As smart TVs and streaming services like Netflix and Amazon Prime have exploded in popularity, more content is now available outside of the traditional cable/satellite bundle. With the power and speed of high-speed Internet from CMS Internet plus a streaming device or smart TV to get the Live TV channels you love; you are in control of how much money you spend and the channels you pay for.
What is a smart TV or streaming device? Do I have one? Do I need one?
If you’ve purchased a TV in the last few years, you most likely have a Smart TV with the ability to begin streaming right now. If you have an older TV or one that doesn’t support the newest streaming services, then Apple, Roku, Amazon, Google and others all sell affordable streaming devices that turn almost any TV into a smart TV, for as low as $29.99. Most of these devices offer a simple interface to watch your favorite shows. You can either connect your Smart TV or streaming device to your Wi-Fi Internet service. We carry the Amazon Fire Sticks and will gladly sell and install one for you.
