I bought a new DVD player today, it’s a smart one with wifi and allows me to connect to Netflix and Hulu Plus (and more). I looked at TVs too, but didn’t buy one.
Is your TV and/or DVD player smart? Does it have Internet connection?
My TV and DVD player are both stupid, as matches their owner.
We have Roku on our TVs and XBox on another. We stream everything.
I have a fairly intelligent tv but a dumb DVR.
I have a deep suspicion of appliances that are supposed to do two jobs. It goes back to my father’s advice (don’t buy a radio-record player combination), but it still holds.
Like the guy in the next office (when I worked for Bosslawyer). His printer broke — under warranty — and he called the supplier. “Just fax us the info…” He couldn’t because the fax was one with the printer. He came in and asked if he could use our fax.
My tv plays the shows I want; that’s all I care about. My phones make and receive calls. The internet is accessed through my traditional desktop computer, without which I am cut off from my world.
No and no. We have one TV that is so old, it is a combination TV/DVD/VHS (and all components still work). It isn’t even digital ready, so must have a DTA box from the cable company. We have had a Roku box hooked up to our living room TV for a couple of years, so we can stream from the internet with that. Techie toys are nice but are at the low end of our priority list at present. “Some day.”
