True...wasn't clear but Roku side loading isn't an option that Iam aware of
I have Amazon Prime just for the free shipping but I haven't checked out any of the other features yet. How do you hook it up to your TV or can you watch programs on your computer
You have to download the Amazon Prime Video app on whatever device you are using to watch your free content. Can also add Showtime, Starz, Etc... for extra fee.
If you have a smart tv then you may have an app avaialbe to download to watch directly on tv. Or purchase a device like Roku, amazon fire, ps4, etc,,,
I have a dumb TV with no apps. So if I buy an Amazon Fire or a Roku is that a device that I plug into the TV or what?
Thanks to you & Cajun Sensation for the excellent advice.
I just looked and the Amazon Prime app seems to be for android. I see there are some movies and TV series I can watch directly on my Win10 computer without the app but how do I get ESPN and the other sports channels
You plug all these devices directly into HDMI on your tv...if have really old tv without HDMI port then you may need to get a new tv or see if any of the devices offer the red, white, and yellow cord option.
ESPN app list which offers both live and streaming content...
Chromecast which may be a good option for you if that is mainly what you want. Stream to tv from phone, tablet, or PC. But Roku and Fire are just way easier to navigate.
Blu Ray Players
All Android Fire Devices
All Apple and Android Devices
I should of added that at this time you would need to purchase a subscription with either Slingtv or Sony Vue to watch ESPN legally.
sling is offering a free roku3 with new accounts 3 months pre-paid
Who was the LSU fan working for Cox willing to help us out? I am about to cancel my Cox subscription after a decade cause of the insane price..
