How to Stream the Internet to TV: Streaming Movies, Video and Skype


Everyone knows how to use a TV to watch
their favorite TV shows and movies, right? Well, a whole new generation of
internet-connected smart TVs lets you watch free content from a whole
new source, the web. Hi, there. I’m Veronica Belmont, and I’m going to
show you how you can enjoy online entertainment, and even make
Skype calls, on some HDTVs. There’s nothing like getting something
for free, and an internet-connected TV can open up a world of instant access
to entertainment, no cable or satellite box needed. These days, smart HDTVs offer loads of
cutting-edge technology, but one of the most exciting benefits
of these televisions is entertainment from the internet. What’s that? You don’t have an internet-connected
TV? No problem. There are other ways you can hook
up to free entertainment– a Playstation 3 system, Blu-ray Disc
player, or even an inexpensive web-ready box you can connect
to virtually any TV. OK, OK, we’ll cut to the chase and show
you how you can set up to stream internet on your TV. Many smart TVs now
offer ethernet connections that hook directly into your internet router,
but select models like this one are equipped with built-in wifi. That means you can place your TV
anywhere in the room and easily connect it to your home wifi network,
without the hassle of running cables to your router. Some TV models are wifi-ready, meaning
that you’ll need to purchase a separate adapter in order to connect
your wireless network. Once your HDTV and wifi connection are
set up, get ready to access all the entertainment you could possibly want. You can instantly access thousands of
movies, TV shows, music choices, online videos, and games from providers
such as YouTube, Crackle, Pandora, just to name a few. And with internet apps, you can access
news, sports, weather updates, play games, check Facebook and Twitter, all
while you watch TV. With this TV, new apps are automatically delivered
directly to your HDTV, so you’ll never run out of things to do and watch. Now, speaking of free things to do,
there’s one more feature that select internet TVs have that you might
be interested in, Skype. You know Skype, the internet voice and
video call service that lets you stay connected to other Skype friends
and family for free? Well, now you can use Skype on your
big-screen TV. Check it out. Hey, Veronica. Glad you called. Hey, Janie. What’s going on? Not much. I’m actually just doing a video. Can you hold on for just a moment? I have a lot to tell you about. No more squinting on a tiny laptop, or
trying to squeeze your entire family into the frame of a webcam
just to say hi. On Skype-enabled TVs like this one,
you just purchase a separate compatible camera/microphone accessory,
connect it to your TV, pull up the Skype app on your
TV screen, and connect. Instantly, you’re talking to your family
from the comfort of your couch. The camera’s wide angle shows everything
on your big screen. Long gone are the days of not having
anything good to watch on TV. With new smart HDTVs and their ability to stream
an entire universe of free entertainment via the internet, you’ve
got everything you need right at your fingertips. I’m Veronica Belmont for
