1x1.trans Why PlayStation is a Better Video Streaming Console video streaming devices 2 Xbox One vs PlayStation 4

Game consoles can be a convenient source for streaming services, but there are still many different consoles to choose from. Using video game consoles as streaming devices is a cost-effective option for gamers, combining a source of gaming with a high-quality set-top box to stream TV and video files. The real consideration from that point is which console is best for streaming, with XBox and PlayStation being the two key players. Though the two consoles have similar streaming options, the PlayStation is a superior service. PlayStation and XBox compete so vigorously that any advance one of the consoles makes will quickly be matched by the opposing console, but there are several characteristics that reign PlayStation over XBox.

Amazon Fire TV is not a Cable TV Alternative

Amazon Instant Video is not Enough

What Else Can Amazon Fire TV do?

1x1.trans Amazon Fire TV is not a Cable TV Alternative video streaming devices 2

A Video Streaming box (media set-top box) should provide access to video content from every source available – including over-the-air broadcasting. It should offer a user friendly interface for easy searching and navigation, and it should prioritize content options based on price and video quality. Jumping from show to show or movie to  movie, should be as easy as changing channels on a standard Cable TV remote control. Most importantly a set top box should take advantage of free broadcast TV, record it for you via a DVR, and should always route users towards the most cost effective way to enjoy the shows they love.
In short a video streaming device should act as your ultimate Cable TV Alternative.Lets look at Amazon’s Fire TV video streamer and see how it matches up to these requirements.

Cable TV Alternatives: Splitters & Amplifiers

 

First of all congratulations. If you are reading this post you are ahead of the masses, and have realized OTA (Over-the-Air) TV is an amazing alternative to Cable TV. Now you are looking for a way to push your free HD TV signal to multiple TVs in your house.

 

Coaxial Splitter

The first thing you need to do is buy a coaxial splitter. This is an inexpensive device that will split your OTA signal into multiple sub-signals, allowing you to push free TV broadcasting to multiple TVs. It’s my understanding that splitting the signal in two results is a 50% drop in signal strength (3.5db). And every additional split will continue to decrease the overall signals strength. So if you have a weak or marginal signal coming into the house from the antenna, splitting it will have a negative effect. This also means that if you only need a two-way splitter, don’t use a 4-way splitter because you’re losing more signal strength with every unused output. Finally the more distance the signal has to travel, the weaker the signal becomes. So less feet in coaxial cable, means stronger signal, equating to better picture quality.
