The way in which we consume and enjoy the media that we watch has changed over time and this is in part thanks to advancements made in the internet. In the past, we would depend on what comes on the television and what is playing at the theaters to determine what we would be watching. We then evolved slightly into Blockbusters and other similar stores, where we could buy tapes and DVDs to take home.
These days, it is rare that someone will sit back and enjoy a DVD and we are far more impressed by the world of streaming, thanks to its convenience and low price in comparison to other forms of media.
Though streaming is fantastic, sometimes you have to be quite savvy to understand how to stream and not everyone understands technology and so avoid streaming completely. If this sounds like you, then you have come to the right place. Here is how to stream your favorite shows online.
Download Free Streaming Software
If you are someone that owns a Firestick or smart TV, something that you have likely been advised to try is free streaming software. If you are someone with little experience on the internet, your first thought is likely that software like that is completely unreliable and unsafe to use, but this is not the case at all. Our devices are extremely clever and thanks to powerful firewalls, it is now very rare that our devices will allow us to download something that may be harmful. The good thing about downloading streaming software is that you have all of the TV shows and series that you want to watch in one place, so you do not have to worry about the hassle of jumping between different apps.
There are a variety of apps that you can download, but above all I would definitely suggest that you use Vizio. Vizio is a reliable multi channel streaming app that allows you to access all of your favorite shows. If you are someone without a remote, as many as us are, you may be worried about using this app without a remote. However, you can do a lot of things in the app without the use of a controller. In fact, you can factory reset vizio tv without a remote and even control it using an app.
Watch Youtube Uploads
If you do not have money to spend on streaming apps and you are worried about free apps, I will let you in on a little secret. There are some people out there that record their DVD’s and streamed films and then upload this to Youtube. This is great for anyone that wants to use an app they know and love and you can often find pretty much any movie you want, as long as it is not a brand new release. You do have to remember that shows and movies do get deleted from the site and so you have to be fast.
Invest In Netflix
There are a lot of streaming platforms out there and it can be hard to choose exactly which one is worth buying. If you are looking for a streaming service that has a decent selection of movies and films, then I would say that Netflix is definitely the best of the bunch. Netflix are constantly changing and updating the films that they have, so you will never get bored of the selection that is on offer.
Join a Viewing Party
If there is a certain film that you have been dying to watch, but you have been unable to find it on the internet, I would recommend joining a viewing party. This consists of one person with access to a certain film or show sharing it in a stream online, which means that you can watch whatever if you need by doing a quick search of the movie you are looking for and finding the available viewing party.
