Don't worry if the streaming video wave has passed you by.
This holiday season is an ideal time to embrace TV delivered over the Internet, as several streaming players have refreshed their models recently. That means some bargains can be found in the coming days and weeks — a good deal whether you are a newcomer or seasoned streamer looking to upgrade.
What's not to like about streaming video? Already more than one-fourth of all homes (27%) have at least one standalone Internet TV streaming device such as a Roku or Apple TV, finds a Leichtman Research survey. Those devices connect to the Internet and your TV to deliver TV shows, movies and other video, serving as an alternative or addition to traditional pay-TV services.
Some Internet video is free, while other content such as Netflix and the recently-launched YouTubeRed requires a subscription. More than half the homes in ten of the largest U.S. cities have subscriptions to streaming video services such as Netflix, Amazon Video and Hulu, according to Nielsen.
At StreamSmart is just one time payment, NO monthly Fee.
