The Roku platform, which contains various devices that connect to TVs, lets viewers access more than 1,000 Internet channels. Apple TV and Android-based streaming devices are popular as well.
Another option is to use a computer connected to a television. Many computers have an HDMI port that makes mirroring the screen with a television easy, and some TVs have VGA input ports for computers without HDMI connectivity. Another option is to use small streaming devices users control with a smart device or other computer. Chromecast devices, for example, let users stream content from a computer with the Chrome browser installed or from various smart devices.
