Is it any  wonder that cable networks are losing customers by the day when there are so many amazing streaming networks online? In fact, that is one of the reasons why so many cable companies have got into providing internet services. Not only can their customers access the internet, but they can pay subscriptions to their favorite cable channels and watch streaming media like Netflix and Amazon Prime as well. Now then, if you are wondering what you will need to get the most enjoyment from streaming media, here are a few things you’ll need to have.

High Speed Internet

Since streaming media takes up a lot of bandwidth and the files are ginormous, it is imperative that you find an internet provider in Sun City Grand AZ, for example, if you live in that neck of the woods. There is nothing more frustrating than to be watching a movie only to have it pause to buffer the next few minutes of the show. It doesn’t take long enough for you to run to the kitchen for another cold beer or microwave bag of popcorn, but just long enough to be annoying. The right ISP will resolve that issue so that you really can get the most out of those streaming media sites you love so much.

A Large Flat Screen Smart TV

If you are going to do it ‘theater style’ then you will need a large flat screen Smart television that is anywhere from 60 to 75 inches. It probably all depends on the size of your living room or family room, but nothing less than a large flatscreen television will do. It should also be understood that it must be mounted where it doesn’t get any glare from exterior windows and that everyone in the room can see equally well, not matter which corner they happen to be seated in.

A Sound Bar

If you want a real theater-like experience, you will need either a single soundbar or a soundbar as part of a surround sound system. This will give you the thrill of those opening moments within a theater when the lights dim and all of a sudden you hear music blaring all around you. There is nothing quite like those opening moments of a feature film you have been waiting to see since the previews were announced. You can get that same thrill from your home Smart tv setup if you have a good quality soundbar.

Subscriptions to Your Favorite Streaming Networks

Last, but certainly not least, you will need subscriptions to your favorite streaming movie networks. Among the most popular are:

  • Netflix
  • Amazon Prime
  • Hulu

But you can get all the major movie networks solo or as part of a Prime membership. Amazon offers:

  • AMC
  • Starz
  • Cinemax

To name a few. With all of the affordable streaming networks out there, who needs cable tv anyway? By subscribing to online networks, you can have your cake and eat it too! Enjoy high speed internet and watch all your favorite shows as well. That’s exactly what you need.
