Apple TV and Your Wireless Internet Plan

Apple TV and Your Wireless Internet Plan

It’s easy to turn your regular TV into a smart TV with the help of a wireless internet plan and Apple TV. Premier Broadband in Hope, Arkansas, has you covered on the wireless internet front. The blazing fast broadband internet ensures you get the most out of your Apple TV.

Take a minute to learn more about Apple TV. Then, sign up for one of the wireless internet plans and bring tons of entertainment into your Hope, AR, home.

Stream Video and Audio Content Directly to Your TV

Apple TV is similar to the Roku, but it has a little something extra. Along with streaming from apps like Hulu, Netflix, YouTube, and HBO Go, you can also stream videos from the iTunes store. You just need to connect the Apple TV to one of Premier Broadband’s wireless internet plans, and you can stream in high definition or 4k, depending on the version of the device you purchase. If you have an Apple TV 4k, Apple will even upgrade everything in your existing library from HD to 4k. Of course, you’ll need one of the best wireless internet plans out there to watch the videos in 4k. Premier Broadband has you covered on that front.

Along with streaming videos, Apple TV lets you stream podcasts. As you can imagine, that’s a popular feature since podcasts are so hot right now. You can also stream music and even games with your Apple TV, as long as it’s hooked up to wireless internet from one of the top local internet service providers.

Keep in mind you will need to install apps to use the service. Some apps don’t cost a thing to use, but other apps, such as Netflix and HBO Go, do charge a monthly subscription fee. When you consider all the entertainment you get from these apps, the monthly fee is well worth it.

Apple TV Models – Which One Should You Get?

If you’re interested in buying an Apple TV to use with your wireless internet plan, you’re likely wondering which one you should get. Should you go with an entry-level model, or go all out and get the latest and greatest option out there?

Let’s take a look at your options.

Apple TV 4k – The Latest and Greatest

Are you the type of person who needs the fastest of the wireless internet plans, the latest iPhone, and the best of everything? If so, the Apple 4k TV is right up your alley. As Apple’s flagship model, it doesn’t get any better than this.

Let’s start with the processor. Apple TV 4k uses an A10 processor. If that sounds familiar, it’s because it’s the same processor used in the iPad Pro. This powerful device supports HDR and 4k video, but keep in mind you’ll need a wireless internet plan that’s up to the task. When you get your plan from one of the best local internet service providers, that won’t be a problem.

Apple TV (4th Generation)

Apple TV (4th Generation) is the middle-of-the-road model. It’s not as flashy as the 4k model, but it’s also not an entry-level model. It uses an A8 processor, which is what you’ll find in the iPhone 6, so it’s no slouch. It supports 1080p HD, so the videos are still gorgeous. Keep in mind this model is just $30 less than the Apple TV 4k, though. That means it might make sense to get the 4k, even if you don’t have a 4k TV yet. Who knows what next year might bring? You might upgrade your TV and wish you had upgraded your Apple TV, as well.

Apple TV (3rd Generation)

Apple might not sell this model any longer, but it’s still making its rounds on third-party websites. This is a good option for people who want a bargain. This device has built-in channels, but you won’t have access to an app store. That means you’re limited in what you can do with this version.

While it’s easy to find it for as little as $50, you might want to pay extra for the Apple TV (4th generation) or Apple TV 4k. The app store is one of the best features, so you don’t want to miss out on it.

Don’t Forget to Choose a Wireless Internet Plan

If you want to get started with Apple TV, you need to get a wireless internet plan. Broadband wireless internet plans are fast and can stream your videos without any lag time. That means you can watch movies, play games, and more, all the while forgetting you’re streaming the content. It’ll be so fast and clear you’ll think it’s coming out of the cable box. Actually, it’ll be even better than the cable box if you go with the 4k version.
