SMART TV’s bring you the best of the web straight to your television screen by seamlessly streaming online content through your broadband connection. With no need for a PC, you can access a world of online video entertainment direct from the comfort of your sofa, via your TV screen and trusty remote control.

If you don’t own a SMART TV already, you’ll need a network media player, a wireless router and broadband connection. Once the network media player is plugged into your TV, friends and family can enjoy your favorite memories, tracks or movies from the comfort of the living room sofa, not hunched around a computer.

Media streaming is set to become even easier with the advent of DLNA compatible products. DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) compatibility is the ability to access your photos, music and movies from your PC across your home network from a compatible device. For instance, you could play your friends the latest MP3 track you’ve just downloaded, even though your computer is upstairs in the spare bedroom.

Ways to use media streaming

  • Watch movies: Stream favorite DVDs and downloaded movies from your PC to your big-screen TV in the living room.
  • Watch a family slideshow: Access your entire digital photo library and view all your pictures on TV.
  • Listen to entire music playlists: Free up the music on your PC and listen to it in the living room via the TV’s sound system.
  • Watch videos from YouTube or catch up with the latest on demand services from BBC iPlayer and 4OD, all on your large screen.
  • Choose from a huge number of internet radio stations: Access them via remote control from the comfort of your armchair.
