subscription with an iPad
The great thing about this is that you can, to an extent, watch whatever you want, whenever you want and save a lot of money in doing so! The adaptors are available in Amazon so you can get started with a cost of approx. £25 although you may find it cheaper again on somewhere like eBay.

Get a Hulu Plus subscription. For around £5 a month you can get unlimited streaming and keep up-to-date with those programmes that you love.


Then there is Netflix, which is becoming a well-known name in the streaming and media industries. Netflix costs about the same amount again and brings even more TV programmes and loads of movies for you to choose from.

The beauty of these subscriptions is that you can choose to watch whatever you want, whenever you want. Not only that, but using your iPad and connecting to your TV withthe adaptor means you are still getting the best viewing experience.

You can choose to stream your 
favourite network giving you a bit more stability when you can't be bothered finding something to watch! DISH Network is streaming via theiPad and can therefore be viewed on your TV this way as well for little cost.
