Over-the-top (OTT) viewing
Television transmitters blasting kilowatts of programming into the atmosphere is an outdated concept considering that anyone can start their own YouTube channel for free. Streaming content, available through the internet, is making it difficult for local television stations to retain their viewers.
Why do people give their television service provider $100-200 a month for a 200 channel line up? It’s time to say good-bye to your television service provider and use the savings to buy a new 4K TV.
Over-the-top (OTT) viewing or how to stream content
All you need is a fast internet connection and powerful wireless router to stream content throughout your entire house. To get the content on your TV you can use a streaming media player, an Android TV, an internet TV box, or simply connect a computer to a TV.
If you have a DVR, you know what it’s like when you forget to record a program and you can’t find another date when the program airs. If you have a smart TV or a Roku, you find the program on Hulu or Netflix and stream it when you want to watch it. Local channels can be viewed for free with a $25 digital antenna.
Hulu and Netflix have thousands of programs and movies and there’s an enormous amount of free content at Crackle, Crunchyroll, Snagfilms, YouTube and Popcornflix.
