It seems that in the past few months, there has been an explosion of what I call “super streaming” services, with an abundance of choices, from original content, to hit shows (every King of Queens, what?!) to blockbusters being available to stream as they are released in the theater.
Thanks to these amazing new offerings, it seems that there are more reasons for customers to feel they can watch what they want, when they want, how they want, on their TCL TV.
With the launches of Disney+, HBO Max, Discovery+, Peacock, and Paramount+, amongst others, coinciding with the ever-increasing cost of traditional cable TV, the addition of these channels are giving viewers even more reason to cut the cord.
Bring the Cinema Experience Home
With more and more people wanting to enjoy movies at home, first-run content is becoming more common just as we introduce our XL Collection – which seems like a coincidence almost too good to be true!
With a powerful cinematic screen, an XL Collection TV delivers a big-screen movie-going experience that can be better than going out to the movies.
Sitting about six feet back from an XL Collection screen can deliver the same 60-degree field of view that’s available from the middle seats at the legendary and gigantic 100-foot wide screen at the TCL Chinese Theatre in the heart of Hollywood!
I can’t think of a better way to watch Snyder’s Justice League, Godzilla vs. Kong or Dune than on a GIGANTIC 85” TCL TV. HBO Max is making that happen for us. Bonus, they’re also available in Dolby Vision and Dolby Atmos. WOW! You simply can’t get that from your cable provider.
Your Favorites, All in One Place
I am a huge fan of science, history, and exploring shows. Until recently, I used my provider credentials to watch episodes of How the Universe Works, Expedition Unknown, or Mysteries at the Museum. They were on Science Channel Go, Discover Go, and Travel Channel Go…all independently.
Now, with Discovery+, they are all in one place! In addition, it includes original programming and more.
The content libraries available among these streaming options is staggering. Peacock has every conceivable show with the word “Chicago” in it, much to my wife’s happiness! Paramount+ has everything from all the episodes of Yellowstone to 12 seasons of 2 ½ men.
Bringing Everything Together
TCL Smart TVs have great ways to easily find what to watch next. On one of my TVs, I love the fact that if I’m watching Last Man Standing, I can hit the “OK” button on the remote, and I can easily see all the places I can stream the episode I’m watching, plus every other episode (hint: it’s Hulu).
On another set, I can simply navigate to the Discover tab, and have the TV recommend stuff to watch based on my habits. For example, after I finished Wandavision (hang in there, it gets good!) my TV said I should check out Captain Marvel on Disney+… I forgot how fun that movie was, so I queued it up. I’d be remiss if I didn’t mention that there’s an option in Disney+ to watch all the movies in the Marvel Cinematic Universe in timeline order—how cool is that?!
Settle in for Super Streaming
With some of these “super streamers” (yes, I may trademark that) joining the popular streaming choices you’re already familiar with like Netflix, Prime Video, Google Play, alongside live TV replacement options such as Fubo, Sling and others, the near limitless amount of content available can be yours with a little thought, and some big savings, allowing you to enjoy more.
