How to Start Streaming?

Are you ready to join the fantastic world of streaming but do not have an idea of where to start? Today’s technology has made it easier to stream TV to our devices than ever. We have composed an ultimate step-by-step guide on how to stream LightSpeed TV in the comfort of your home.

Select a Streaming Device

A streaming device is like a Set-top-box that connects to your TV with an HDMI cable. The streaming device will allow you to access video content via the internet including LightSpeed TV services. A streaming device is required for each TV set that you are wanting to access TV service.

Streaming devices include:  Roku Streaming stick, XBOX one / PS5, Amazon FireStick,  Google Chromecast and Apple TV.

Setting up your streaming device.

Plug in your streaming device

Almost all streaming devices plug into your TV’s HDMI port — and usually a power outlet as well. The first thing you’ll need to do is plug the device in, switch your TV over to the HDMI input you’re using and start following the instructions that appear on the screen.

Connect to the Internet

Once you’ve plugged in your streaming device, you’ll need to sign in to your home’s Wi-Fi network. 

Although most devices can use the available wireless wifi connection, some devices — like Amazon’s Fire TV Stick 4K and Google’s Chromecast Ultra — also have the ability to connect directly to your internet modem using an Ethernet cable. This generally provides a more reliable connection, so you’ll experience less buffering on your streams.

Download the LightSpeed TV App

A streaming service provides you with the channels and programs you want to watch. Use your computer, tablet, or smartphone to create an account with your most preferred service provider. You can usually do this from the service’s website or by downloading an app from the app store.

Then, log in to the service using the device you wish to use to stream the service. You can use multiple devices to view the same streaming service.

If you are using a TV to connect to your streaming service, apps for popular services are probably available on the homepage. However, you may require downloading an app if you want to use a service that is not already preloaded.
