Visual technology is constantly changing and the new breed of television feature huge screens and 4K resolution. It’s all a far cry from the bulky black and white sets our grandparents grew up with. But the way we watch television has also undergone considerable changes. We now have a wide variety of programming to choose from including terrestrial channels, streaming services and on-demand TV.

Television’s themselves now offer more than just watching movies. You can hook up your laptop via HDMI or use a Smart TV to access the internet, download YouTube videos or update social media.

One of the major uses of TV today is online gaming via PlayStation, Nintendo or Xbox needs a fast and reliable internet connection. Many of the streaming services would not even be around if it was not for internet compatible TVs. There is no doubt that internet is an integral part of home and business, but also for our everyday entertainment.

In order to connect the TV to the router, we can always go wireless, which can be patchy at times and could bring to you the much dreaded wireless black spots, especially when you are connected to YouTube, Netflix or even games.

In a situation where you have more than one device to connect to the internet, for example a games console & Smart TV in the same corner, choose a TP-Link Powerline Adapter with multiple Ethernet ports to connect to each device separately.
