Tired of being wired?

Get rid of those unsightly cables and wires running rampant in your home. From wireless routers to Roku streaming players, learn what you’ll need to stay connected while ditching all those wires.

Get connected

Probably the most important pieces of the wireless puzzle:

Keep in mind most new devices have built-in wireless capabilities, so check the specs and you may not have to purchase a wireless network adapter.

Stream seamlessly

Once you’re connected, you’re ready to:

  • Surf the Web
  • Stream your favorite movies and TV shows
  • Watch live sporting events that may not be available on network or cable TV
  • Play games on demand; many video game titles have extensions only available online

The wireless world is literally at your fingertips, all in stunning high definition, and all on your favorite devices. Popular products like streaming playersBlu-ray players, and receivers by Roku, Sony, and Netgear put instant entertainment on your TV from the likes of VUDU, Netflix, Hulu and Pandora. You can also stream high-quality content directly through your Xbox 360PlayStation 3HDTViPad or home computer.

Still have DVDs that you love and just won’t give up? Look for data services — sometimes through the same places that provide streaming video — that do a disc to digital transfer, where you can have your entire movie disc collection stored remotely, accessible at any time, any place.
