Cut the Cord with Media Streaming Devices

Streaming
With internet access and the right streaming capable device, you can expand the available selection of shows and movies in your home with a streaming service. Keep up on your favorites and discover new shows, all on-demand, from the comfort of your couch. Use several streaming services to have hundreds of options, or use just one and still have endless choices. Streaming is the perfect tool to help you eliminate your cable bill.

Streaming Devices
The subscription costs are minimal in comparison to cable or satellite, with some free services available, but streaming requires the right equipment. If your TV is not already equipped with built in Wi-Fi capability like a smart TV, you’ll need a media streaming device to utilize a streaming service.

A streaming device is an accessory that plugs into your television and offers a variety of streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon Prime, Hulu, Sling, and many more. These video streaming devices are made easy to use and are affordable alternatives to a cable box. We offer the top devices currently on the market that will allow you to watch your favorite shows without cable or satellite. Combine one of these devices with an online streaming subscription service and you can pay less than $10/month to watch TV!

Device Options We Offer:

  • Roku
  • AppleTV
  • Amazon FireTV
