Internet TV, an easy option

BY contributor | Thu Aug 08, 2013

We spend a significant amount of our daily lives on the internet. Let’s face it, we all need it for the convenient information but we also enjoy the abundance of entertainment that is available. Over the last few years, the entertainment side of the internet has become a growing industry, and internet TV is a prime example of that. By making their easy and affordable services available with just a simple internet connection, Netflix and Hulu Plus have changed the way you can view your favorite shows and movies.

Hulu Plus

Live TV from your cable or satellite provider is perfect for catching the big game or a brand new episode from your favorite series. But what if you forgot to record a show that has already aired? Don’t worry! You can still catch if you have an internet connection. Hulu Plus has the top shows available the day after they air for you to enjoy. All you need to do is find internet access and sign up for a very affordable Hulu Plus subscription. After that, you will be able to enjoy the latest shows from your phone, tablet, laptop, or even your gaming device. Hulu Plus also has limited commercials during its programs, which everyone can appreciate!


Everyone has caught on to the Netflix craze during the last few years. Similar to Hulu Plus, Netflix can also be used to stream your favorite shows by simply having an internet connection and a cheap subscription. Not only does Netflix have complete seasons of your favorite shows, it also has a vast selection of movies for you to choose from. You probably can’t stand sitting through commercials while you’re watching your favorite show or movie. Of course, this is very understandable if you consider the amount of commercials that come on TV these days. Luckily, Netflix has no commercials, so you can be entertained without being interrupted! Movies and TV shows for all ages are readily available, which allows your whole family to enjoy this service.

Hook-Up Your Internet

As soon as you get your internet hooked up at home, you can subscribe to one of these programs. Netflix and Hulu Plus serve as great entertainment options until you pick a cable or satellite plan that is right for you. Even if you already have a provider for TV, Netflix and Hulu Plus serve as good complements to make sure you have access to all the best shows and movies. If you have kids in college, these services are a great and affordable option because they are exceptionally easy to use as long as there is an internet connection.

Since these services can also be used on your smart phone or tablet, you can view your shows and movies on-the-go. For example, you could watch an episode of your favorite show while waiting at the doctor’s office or even while relaxing by the pool! Netflix and Hulu Plus have made it convenient for you to enjoy your programs anytime. Just remember to hook up your internet at home and use your smart phone or tablet while you are away.
