Over the Top Programming
Over the top (OTT) means viewing programs through the internet instead of through traditional cable television. Over the Top entertainment is commonly known as streaming. Streaming your favorite shows, movies, and events has never been easier with Firefly Fiber Broadband's lightning fast internet speeds. Just imagine on-demand entertainment whenever you want within your home. Best of all, most paid streaming services allow viewers to have commercial free entertainment!
Although Firefly Fiber Broadband does not create streaming services or video content, we encourage customers to read about the devices, apps, and streaming services available on the market to decide which ones would be a good fit for their home entertainment needs.
Smart phones, computers, and tablets offer immediate access to countless streaming apps, but did you know that devices like Roku, Amazon Fire Stick, and many others can enable most televisions to use streaming services? Here are a few options that could help connect household TVs to many streaming services:
- Amazon Fire Stick
- Smart TVs (TVs able to have streaming apps built in and can connect to the internet)
- Newer Gaming Consoles (PS4, XBox1)
