Smart televisions are common today. These televisions come preloaded with an operating system such as Google’s Android TV, LG’s webOS, or Samsung’s Tizen OS, and allow you to download a plethora of apps for streaming. But what if you have an old and dumb television, or just planning to go for the one without smart features? You do not need to spend a lot to get access to streaming services on these television sets, thanks to streaming sticks. There are several streaming devices available on the market. Depending on your television’s specifications and your preferences, these streaming sticks offer from 1080p to 4K videos, with support for technologies such as Dolby Vision.
