Default Direct TV and Utube

When I had my Direct TV installed the guy asked if I wanted it connected to my computer for Pandora and Utube.
It didnt cost extra as it is just a wire that connects from my computer to my TV.
I love it. Much better to watch quilt videos etc. on my big screen than on my computer screen.
It dosnt work for all the web, just Utube and Pandora.

You can use any computer and tv if they have the HDMI plug...just plug your computer to the tv with a HDMI cable and you can see anything on your computer on the big screen.

Viv

Hubby uses a ROKU also and it has lots of free channels. Good way to see lots of documentaries, movies, etc.

Isn't any of this wireless? Without cables if you have a router in your house?

We have a computer attached to our flat screen TV. It's wonderful to be able to watch YouTube, Hulu and amazon prime online on the big TV screen.
