Hi hi test test. Hi test.
- Stream to your smartphone, tablet, or computer: Your cable provider probably has a free mobile app (we ran down a list of them in this post) that lets you stream anything in their on-demand streaming library on your smartphone or tablet. All you have to do is log in with your customer account (with Comcast, you can even create delegate accounts for other people in your household,) choose the show you want to watch, and stream to your heart’s content. Some providers may limit what you can stream on the web versus what you can stream on your cable box, but either way there’s plenty to watch from all of your favorite networks.
- Add and authorize special channels or apps on your Roku, Chromecast, or other set-top boxes: Just because you have cable doesn’t mean that set-top boxes like the Apple TV, Chromecast, Roku, or any of our other favorites are useless. Popular channels like ESPN, HBO, SyFy, and others all have their own apps for most of them, and as long as you log in with that same customer account, you can select from recently aired episodes of your favorite shows, new movies, or older programming you can stream and enjoy. This is ideal if the movie or show you want to watch isn’t available through video on demand, you’re traveling with your Chromecast, or you just have a TV in a room that doesn’t have a cable jack. This great post at How-To Geek runs down the apps and TV Anywhere services for most major cable providers.
