With the cord cutting age upon us, most people are ditching cable for streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and Disney Plus. How we access those services, however, is up to us.

The easiest way to get streaming services on your existing television is to buy a streaming device, such as a Chromecast, Roku, or Amazon Fire TV Stick. They’re cheap, functional, and they receive plenty of updates throughout their lifetime.

Game consoles also allow for streaming things on your TV, so if you already own a PlayStation, Xbox, or Nintendo Switch, you can stream most of your favorite services on your TV.
