Internet Television / Video Streaming/Expert Profile


Ask A Question

Expertise

I can answer questions on most types of legal video streaming options, such as Netflix, Roku, Internet-enabled TVs, Hulu, etc. Out of respect for copyright holders, I will not answer questions regarding BitTorrent or other peer-to-peer sharing, where content creators are deprived of their due royalties. I can only answer questions from the viewpoint of a consumer of video services. I have been getting a lot of questions from the standpoint of someone wishing to create content. THIS IS OUTSIDE MY EXPERTISE. My expertise is also limited to knowledge of streaming services and the content available on them, how to subscribe to them, etc. I CANNOT assist with hardware configuration questions.

Experience in the area

I have been a cord cutter for over 5 years. My current setup includes a Roku HD box, a PC attached to my computer and surround sound system, and subscriptions to Netflix and Hulu Plus. I dropped Cox Communications as my cable TV provider and am saving over $100 a month.

What do you like about this subject?

I have always been a tech geek, and I am not afraid to be at the leading edge of innovation. This is where television is going in the next 5 - 10 years, and I love being part of the pioneers.

Something interesting about this subject that others may not know:

I'm surprised how many people still think Internet-based video can only be watched on a computer monitor. There are so many options now for transforming internet video to your regular living room TV, and I want people to know the options.

Something controversial or provocative about this subject

Certainly the most controversial aspect of this subject is file-sharing. Just as with music swapping through peer-to-peer networks, the same exists with video. I have chosen not to participate in this realm of internet video, and I have also chosen not to provide advice on the subject, out of respect for the hard work and talents of the many people who create content.

2016-06-13 smart tv problem:

Hi Chris    I would say that is definitely your culprit. The minimum bandwidth for streaming any decent quality video is 3MBps. At 5k, I'm surprised you're able to see any video whatsoever. Having said
