New Gadget Aims to Improve Internet Streaming

Thisis a Sponsored Post

Veebeam is a great new product that allows you to watch anything streamable in full HD on your TV. If like me you have tried to stream sport online, you end up having to play around and resize browser windows and the end result is something that you squint at for the next 90 minutes (depending on the sport you follow!).

Pros

– There are no wires.
– It only takes only a few minutes to set up.
– The unit itself is compact and looks good.
– The signal is even effective through a wall.
– The new HD model streams up to 1080p for a crisp, clean and colourful picture.
– Optical audio output allows you to enjoy your surround sound.
– The Play To mode allows you to stream files directly without having to display them on your laptop screen.

Cons

– You’ll need a decent computer processor to enjoy perfect video.
– There is a 2 second picture delay.

Price
Veebeam HD, £139 (uk.veebeam.com)

Verdict
If you want your laptop to multitask harder than ever, then you can’t beat the Veebeam for sleek simplicity and user-friendliness. Internet video is only getting better, so invest now and you might soon recoup your expenses when you find yourself cancelling all your television subscriptions.

I would use the Veebeam box primarily to stream football and baseball games. As a Boston Red Sox fan, the idea of watching the games on my plasma TV is very appealing as it is annoying to have to watch it on my iMac which is stuck in the downstairs office.

I don’t watch a lot of regular TV and hate the idea of watching shows when the broadcaster tells me to. That’s why I use BBC iPlayer to catch up on The Apprentice and great documentaries aired on BBC Four.

You can also buy the unit here on Amazon
