A few years ago, I opened my cable bill to find yet another price hike. For the little amount of television I watch, I didn’t feel that a bill quickly approaching $200 was appropriate. Today, there are so many great gadgets for in-home entertainment that you don’t need to rely on cable. And Gearbest has the gear at rock bottom prices.
There are so many streaming TV options available today that you can easily find something to watch, even if it is a little different from the cable channels you’re used to. You can select from Netflix, Hulu Plus, Crackle, Amazon Prime, HBO Go, and many more.
To stream these different services, you’ll need a device that handle them. Android TV streaming boxes have become popular because they not only run well-known apps like Netflix, but they can also run the powerful Kodi (formerly known as XBMC) media center program. Some are even built for gaming as well! Gearbest provides many options, including this small box that looks like a small power adapter. The quad-core A7 processor can handle HD streams with ease, supporting a 1920×1080 resolution. It’s small enough to plug directly into a wall outlet, with just one HDMI cable running from the box to your TV. This is perfect if you have a wall-mounted TV.
You can also stream your favorite content directly from your smartphone or laptop. The Gearbest EZCast Pro allows compatible devices to “sling” their content to your TV screen. For example, most iPhones and iPads support “AirPlay”, so you simply swipe up from the bottom of your device and select the AirPlay option to instantly transfer your videos, picture, or music playback to your TV.
Your Favorite Music
A friend recently showed off the integrated satellite radio player in his car, but I was puzzled why he would pay $10-$20 a month for a radio service. I discovered long ago that streaming radio stations allow me to enjoy a wide variety of music for free. Pandroa, iHeart Radio, and Slacker Radio all offer customizable stations with limited advertisements, or you can pay a much smaller monthly fee (typically around $4) to get rid of the ads. There are also services like Apple Music and Spotify that allow you to stream basically any song you want as often as you want for around $10 a month.
But if jamming out to your phone’s tinny speakers isn’t cutting it for you, Bluetooth speakers help amplify and enrich your tunes without worrying with wires. For example, this speaker from Gearbest is very portable for jamming wherever you are. Or, liven up your music even more by using a Bluetooth speaker with a built-in LED light show.
There are also many options available to integrate your smartphone into your car’s stereo. If your car has an “Aux” port, you can use a Bluetooth receiver to stream music from your phone without wires.
