Stream Dreams: Details On the Best Streaming Devices Available
Month by month you receive that overpriced cable bill. You are finally to the tipping point. After working 40 hour weeks, rushing to pick the little ones from school, getting home to cook dinner and help with homework. It seems like watching TV is a luxury. When you do watch TV you tend to always drift into watching an infomercial for that copper cooking pan. Sometimes you head to a local Redbox and grab a movie, it has become easier to stop and continue where you left off if sleep becomes the most important thing to do at that time.
All About That Google Chromecast
After calling the cable company and telling them you are done with their shenanigans. Come into Nebraska Furniture Mart and purchase a Google Chromecast (say that 5 times fast). The Google Chromecast is a streaming device that plugs directly into your TV. It’s simple. Use your smart phone to control what you watch, what you listen to, or make your TV into a photo frame.
By using your phone as the remote control, it’s easy to search, browse, queue and control the TV from anywhere in the home. You can keep using your phone for other things without disrupting what’s playing or draining your precious battery. My phone is my right hand, it never leaves my sight, unlike the remote control that I think it was only invented to so it can be misplaced.
The Google Chromecast works with iPhone, iPad, Android phone and tablet, Mac and Windows laptop. It comes in three amazing colors, Black, Lemonade and Coral. It will allow you to stream apps like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Video, Spotify, YouTube, and countless of others. This streaming device will fulfill any gap that cable has left in the household. Don’t be scared to cut the cord, once you do, you will never look back.
How About a Roku for You?
Another popular streaming player is the Roku. They offer a couple of different options at different price levels. Like the Chromecast, you’ll get access to a variety of streaming services and channels. The Roku Express and Roku Streaming Stick are fantastic choices for less than $60.
