Hi there – loving the advice on your site. I haven’t had cable/sat for a while and am lucky to get plenty of channels by antennae. I also have AppleTV and a Netflix subscription. I recently bought a new TV and they threw in a Chromecast which I’ve set up but not used much yet. So I’d like to access Hulu content with a US DNS (I used to have one from Unblock US but let it lapse) but I’m not sure whether I should put the DNS in my new-ish Chrome laptop or an old HP laptop that has Windows 10. The old one is reeaallly slooow. Do you have any advice on how I should best use my devices and laptops once I get a US DNS?

A bottle of Coffiest also has 150mg of caffeine, which isn’t actually all that much—more than in a small cup of diner coffee but less than half what you’ll get from a Grande Pike at Starbucks. And just for good measure, Coffiest also includes 75mg of L-Theanine, a supposedly more even-keeled energy supplement that some people swear by even though the scientific evidence isn’t necessarily overwhelming. All together, it’s a 400-calorie meal for about $3.10 a bottle. We haven’t tried it ourselves, but given what we know about Soylent and coffee, Coffiest probably tastes like caffeinated Cheerios. And, let’s be honest here, you’re gonna fart a lot the first few times you try it.
The Nvidia Shield is almost certainly more important to Google than it is to Nvidia. After the failure of Google TV—in part thanks to its lacklustre UI and poor developer support—its follow-up Android TV needed to do better. Unfortunately, that hasn’t quite happened. Sure, Google’s own Nexus Player is a fine piece of hardware, and Razer’s Forge TV has its charms, but neither sports the flagship specs, nor the feature set of Nvidia’s sleek black box. There’s no doubt that the Shield is the best Android TV device money can buy, but like all Android TV devices, it comes with a few compromises.
That was then and this is now, when something new is knocking very loudly on the door. When the public open that door and let an Android TV Box (also known as an Smart TV Box) into their lives, just wait and see how home entertainment will change, and how enjoyable TV will become again.
Not all receiver devices can access all content providers. Most have websites that allow viewing of content in a web browser, but sometimes this is not done due to digital rights management concerns or restrictions. While a web browser has access to any website, some consumers find it inconvenient to control and interact with content with a mouse and keyboard, inconvenient to connect a computer to their television, or confusing. Manufacturers of SmartTVs, boxes, sticks, and players must decide which providers to support, typically based either on popularity, common corporate ownership, or receiving payment from the provider.

Hi Bonnie – actually the comment did go up on the other article (Save Money Challenge #1: Slash Your TV Cost). When you submit a comment on my site and most blogs, they get posted immediately after you hit save/submit. I think your comment is fine, but did you want me to remove it for you?
For the other streaming sites, we used each account and gave each service a percentage score out of 100. If a site was straightforward and easy to use, it scored 90 percent or higher. A lower score means the design of the site was difficult to navigate, and we encountered problems browsing and searching during our testing.
Companies like TCL, Insignia, Sharp, HiSense, and others have adopted the Roku platform, and this has allowed for a variety of televisions with Roku for just about every buyer. The TCL 55S405 offers a 55-inch LED panel with 4K support for as little as $379, and spending that same $599 for the smaller Sony set will get you the TCL 55P605. This is the television I’ve been using for the past week, and even at its current price without any sales, it’s an absolute steal. The 55-inch screen size is plenty large, 4K HDR and Dolby Vision create for a picture that looks downright phenomenal for this price range, and the built-in speakers are also surprisingly nice.
I was just wondering if the 5 IR programmable buttons on the GooBang Doo MX3, can be matched individually to actions on the TV (turning it on/off) and an amplifier/receiver (muting the sound) that has infra red capabilities.
Hi have been researching how to get out of my Direct TV cancellation fees, but before I do I want to make sure this KODI which I guess is streaming player does all I want? I don’t understand all the tech language so I’m not sure if it will also get me all the local channels ,and my fav cable channels, like E, Lifetime ,Nat Geo, History, Animal Planet, or do I have to buy add one? I don’t want to lose my DVR recording ability. Is this stream player easy to hook up and update add ons, for a non tech person, or will I need to hire someone to get it set up?
Streaming boxes are the best way to get access to everything Android TV and Roku have to offer without spending hundreds (if not thousands) of dollars on a new television set, and this is one area where Roku pulls an easy win. Roku currently offers a variety of streaming boxes and sticks that range in price from just $29 up to $99, each with their own set of features and limitations.
The three cable giants — which all produce and distribute content — want to stamp out the Android box industry. They have already won a temporary injunction, preventing targeted dealers from selling their loaded devices until the case is resolved.
Kodi runs beautifully smoothly on the Fire TV and takes just a few seconds to load. Amazon’s excellent Voice Remote is great for navigation and connects via Bluetooth, so you don’t need line of sight; voice commands are not supported in Kodi, though.

Also, If you’re an Xfinity subscriber and want to use HBO GO, you’re out of luck. For whatever reason, Comcast doesn’t allow you to use your login credentials on Android TV for HBO GO, HGTV, Food Network, and a variety of other TV Everywhere apps. There’s a decent selection of content to be found on Android TV, but there are still issues here and there that can make it unusable depending on what you like to watch.
Google’s Chromecast works with a wide range of apps that you can download to your smartphone, from Netflix to BBC iPlayer, however it is not compatible with Amazon Prime Video, so if you have a subscription you won’t be able to use the Chromecast for this. You can also stream from the Google Play Store, although the service is not as cheap as buying a season pass to NowTV or a Netflix Subscription, as you buy films individually.
The remote-control app for Android TV devices isn’t all that full-featured—it’s essentially just an app version of the plastic remote included with the Google Nexus Player. Regardless, it’s a handy backup clicker or a back-from-the-dead use case for an old iPod Touch. You’ve got your D-pad for navigating menus. Got that home button right there, too. Back button? Check. Even has an icon on there for a-playin’ and a-pausin’, and you can turn the whole screen into a touchpad like some kind of weirdo.
If you’re in Asia, then chances are you’ve heard them called TV boxes. Personally, I prefer calling them TV boxes. It is a more generic term, sure, but the device can do so many things that it just makes more sense.

First of all you have to simply plug in your Android TV Box into your TV’s Wall Socket. Then you have to install the Google Home application on your smartphone, plug in to the Google Chromecast Ultra and the application will detect your installed hardware.
Microsoft developed a media player known as ActiveMovie in 1995 that allowed streaming media and included a proprietary streaming format, which was the precursor to the streaming feature later in Windows Media Player 6.4 in 1999. In June 1999 Apple also introduced a streaming media format in its QuickTime 4 application. It was later also widely adopted on websites along with RealPlayer and Windows Media streaming formats. The competing formats on websites required each user to download the respective applications for streaming and resulted in many users having to have all three applications on their computer for general compatibility.
The device comes with an 8GB memory that gives you plenty of space to store your favorite movies and TV shows locally. The device supports an external hard drive connection using a USB so you can easily increase storage if you feel the need.
Apart from that, it comes installed with all the necessary applications. Moreover, if you want to install any more applications on the TV Box, it is extremely easier for us to install them directly from the play store.
What if you want to both stream video and play games? Well, you have many choices including Sony’s PlayStation 4 Pro or the Xbox One X, but for streaming, I prefer the Nvidia Shield (2017) with its $179 price-tag.
