Did you know that you can binge-watch your favorite TV shows on your car video system?
If you think your car video and DVD system is only for watching movies on disc, you’re in for a pleasant surprise. In fact, with the right setup, you could be streaming the final season of Game of Thrones during your next road trip or catching up on Arrested Development Season 5 on the way to soccer practice.
The Rise of Streaming Services
Content streaming services – like Netflix, HULU, CBS All-Access, etc. – have become the preferred means of watching TV for many consumers.
Our viewing habits were, for decades, structured around the date and time of television broadcasts. Once DVR technology came along, consumers were able to watch their shows on their own schedule but were still stuck with having to watch at home (or wherever their DVR happened to be).
With the advent of streaming services, we now have the option to watch exactly what we want whenever – and wherever – we want to. And, now, that includes the car.
The other benefit of using subscription streaming for content is that, unlike the rigid programming packages of cable and satellite companies, you get to pay only for the programming you want.
Streaming to a Car Video System
You have a variety of options for streaming video content in your vehicle. You can connect to streaming services through an internet connection but one of the easiest ways is to use a streaming device – Chromecast, Amazon Fire, Apple TV, Roku Express, etc. – that plugs in through a USB port.
If you stream through your smartphone or tablet, you can connect the device to your car video system in a variety of ways, depending on the system you select.
Choosing a Car Video & DVD System
Although car video was once viewed as a luxury, consumers now demand the same high-quality, reliable content streaming in their vehicles as they do at home.
In fact, many systems can be integrated to use your vehicle’s factory controls. This improves the user experience while helping you maintain safety behind the wheel. And, with vehicle Wi-Fi and Bluetooth connectivity now available, you’ll never have to worry about having the right DVD or Blu-Ray discs in the car to make the kids happy.
