Streaming devices have become an incredible portal to the television shows that we love for almost every content provider imaginable. The fact that all streaming devices are not created equal is important to keep in my when selecting the right device for you. We will detail a couple of great options for streaming devices below that will help illustrate how you can access an unlimited number of television shows with these tools.
Roku is the ultimate streaming device when it comes to being able to customize your home screen to show you the content that you want to see. Virtually every television show that you have access to can be downloaded for free and you can access those shows via apps that serve as portals to your viewing. You can easily access your show by finding what network provider hosts the show. You then can do a very simple search that will allow you to find the available apps that essentially host the show. Roku does not have an affiliation to any one network so it essentially serves as a platform for any of the apps in question. It is a seamless platform that will give you the ability to see things and organize your streaming device based upon your preferences and interests.
Amazon Fire’s Platform
The Amazon Fire is a dynamic streaming device that is perfect for the Prime Member. The Fire Stick is the most common streaming device that is used to stream television shows and movies that are included within the Prime ecosystem. In addition, the Amazon Fire stick also has the app based functionality that allows you to get television shows and other content that are beyond the Amazon Prime universe. The Amazon Fire ecosystem also includes tablets in many different sizes that allows you to both download content and stream live events through apps.
These two streaming devices are good examples of ways that television shows and movies are more available than ever before. The only caveat to that is you will need to know both the network/platform and your level of access to each provider’s content. The fragmented content landscape does offer challenges to individual households that are looking to cut the cord completely. The content consumer needs to understand how access is given then it is incumbent upon the consumer to map out the content tree that will ultimately provide the shows and movies that they want to watch. The simplicity that the streaming devices provide really is something that is a benefit to the consumer.
The Roku and Amazon Fire devices are the two leaders in the industry right now and they are constantly evolving and adding content. There are also other options that will give you a similar experience with other potential features. The key is to know what apps are supported with each device so you can ensure that you’re able to enjoy all of the content that you want.
