When it comes to connected devices in the home, more and more we're finding old products with new features. TVs, audio systems, DVD & Blu-ray players, game systems and more are all turning into connected devices at the center of out home media setups. Of course there are streaming media boxes like Apple TV, Roku and Amazon's Fire TV that are the epitome of connected devices.
Smart TVs now offer connected features for getting online to browse the web, watch YouTube videos, stream Pandora and much more. No longer are you limited to just a "dumb" TV — now they are open to so many possibilities in the connected world. Streaming media devices allow for easy access to services like Netflix, Hulu, HBO Go, Amazon Instant Video, Vevo, Crackle and much more. These simple, inexpensive boxes connect to your TV and let you stream directly from any number of services, without taking up much space. Game systems like the Playstation 4 and XBOX One are also taking over the media center as they are even more connected with not only online gaming, but also TV access, movies, video calling and streaming media.
