Streaming TV box works by connecting an Internet-enabled device such as an Internet TV box, computer, gaming consoles, Blu-Ray and DVD Players to the TV and streaming video content directly from select Internet sites. Some TVs are already Internet-enabled and can stream Internet content directly without any need to connect to a separate device.
The most basic way to stream Internet video through your TV is to connect it to a computer. Most of the latest computers on the market come with advanced functionality that makes it easy to connect to TVs, and some even allow connections to be made wirelessly to the TV over the home’s Wi-Fi network. Using a computer for Internet streaming, however, is a resource-intensive process. Moreover, many computers are not readily compatible with TVs and require specialized cables that can lower picture quality when using Wi-Fi or HDMI.
