OK signed up. Apparently I already have an account with Amazon. Then when searching for content it kept offering progs for a charge.
Now I wonder how to get it on the big lounge TV rather than a squitty PC monitor.?
A good broadband speed for streaming is at least 1.5 megabits per second (Mbps) for TV services such as BBC iPlayer for standard streaming, or 2.8Mbps for HD quality. For Netflix, the minimum speed required is about 3Mbps for standard streaming and 5Mbps for HD
If you have a smart TV you might be able to watch on that, but you need to look up how.
Ah now thats helpful. We can stream Netflix as and when I turn it on but various other sites get buffered.
I think like Android the smart TV can only access other platforms on Google. Because the last site I accessed courtesy of Peter had to have the whole site address inputted via the cursor which took ages. Not found out how to store new sites yet as there are dozens along the bottom of the screen on switch on.
Plus unless I go via the Roku box everything is streamed in French.
Each TV is different our LG seems pretty good even though it's 4 years old, but we mainly stick to either Virgin or Netflix sometimes prime as it has dedicated buttons for that, I also stream YouTube stuff direct to the TV from my laptop phone or tablet if it has this icon :-
OK been trying to use this new free service Kev.
Apparently the LG TV uses The LG Content Store? This can bring up Amazon Freevee as an add but so far I have been unable to actually select 'play' anywhere or even 'save' the site.
But I now can bring up the add as that is 'saved' to the recent library. But getting to the next step of actually playing anything has beaten me and I have only spent an hour on it.
It would be very handy if it was in the Roku store of sites. But I guess Amazon are the 'competition' like Apple.
