How to Stream Live TV

The days of cable television are a thing of the past. Today, TV streaming services dominate the world of television. In order to stream live TV, you need a high-speed Internet connection and a compatible device. With these two key components, you can easily start streaming your favorite shows and movies and watch them from the comfort of your home. If you're not sure how to stream live TV with your Breezeline Internet service, here's what you need to know to get started.

Connect Your Device to the Internet The first step in streaming live TV to a device is to make sure your device is connected to an Internet service. In this case, that’s Breezeline Internet. If you're ever having trouble connecting your device or getting your streaming service to work properly, don't hesitate to contact one of our friendly and knowledgeable representatives at 888.536.9600. With your device properly connected, you're almost ready to start streaming all your favorite content.

Check Your Internet Speed
When you stream TV live, you're not downloading anything to your device. Instead, a steady stream of information is being delivered to your device as long as you're tuned in. So, it's very important that you make sure your Internet service plan provides a connection speed sufficient to support the amount of content you plan to stream. For example, Breezeline offers a Basic plan that can support between four and six devices, which is generally sufficient to support streaming TV to a device. If you’re a power user or small business owner, you may need the GigaFast plan that can support 20 or more devices.

App vs. Desktop/Laptop Options
Your options will change depending on your provider but, for Breezeline customers, if you want to stream your favorite shows and videos on your computer or laptop, you can use Breezeline's Watch TV Online service. If you’re out of the house and would like to stream live TV on an Android device, an iPhone or iPad, , simply download Breezeline's Stream TV app for your device and you’re ready for the final step! Bonus info: if you’re a Breezeline customer watching TV on the app and would like to share what you’re viewing with everyone in the room (or just see it on a larger screen) you can use screen mirroring (iPhone/iPad) to see your small screen on a smart TV.

Choose What To Watch
Once you've connected your device, ensured you have the proper Internet service plan from Breezeline and downloaded the app,you can then decide what you want to watch. Local, basic cable channels and On Demand TV are always available and ready to watch with Breezeline Internet+TV plans. To stream Netflix or HBO Max, all you have to do is sign up for their service, and you'll be ready to start streaming those premium services’ movies and other shows right to your living room.
