So do you just need an internet connection to get Sling? I'm trying to figure out the cheapest way to get more tv channels. I'm pretty far from the city so can only pick up a couple of channels by antenna.
You also need some kind of device to hook to the TV or a "Smart TV". Roku, Chromecast, Amazon Fire stick and many others will connect with Sling.
Thanks. I have a smart TV but I'm not sure if Sling is on there. That's how I got Netflix before before Does anyone know if DirecTV just offers Internet service?
I'm pretty sure DirectTV just bundes using other net providers, like HughesNet or ATT. How do you access the web now?
Only on my cell phone. I don't have internet in the house.
Aha. Well, depending on your plan and connection, you could use your phone to stream via a smart tv.
But won't work because I don't have unlimited data on my plan.
Sounds like you've got some number to crunch. Decide what you are willing to pay for what you want to watch, and for convenience. Where we are, Charter Cable's internet service (+/-$70) is the best bang for the buck. It keeps creeping up, though....$5 every six months or so.
Options are very limited though since there is no cable out here.
If you have a decent internet connection/speed I think an Amazon Fire box would be pretty good. If you have Amazon Prime you can stream a lot of good movies and tv shows. Hulu is working on a streaming service and if it's good it might be the best option. Also, you can download several apps that provide free streaming. If you're inclined to less than honest streaming you can download Kodi and get access to tons of streaming options.
Okay. That's kind of what I was wondering. If I only have Internet what are my options? I really haven't lived here very long so I haven't pursued any information yet.
With internet, you can get hulu, amazon, netflix... That's what we do. Also, we hook up the laptop via HDMI cable to our smartTV and watch streaming sports (NBA, NFL, NHL...)
