Verizon is stepping up its streaming game with a new version of the second generation of Stream TV. Stream TV is an Android TV-powered device available free to Verizon customers who sign-up for Fios Gigabit Connection. 5G Home Internet customers will get a similar offer beginning on Thursday.
The box itself is a Verizon branded portal to the streaming world at large that uses the open and customizable Android TV operating system which has its own TV-based app store and the ability to add any Android app from the web. The new Stream TV has a slim body that fits comfortably next to the TV or cleverly mounted with the included wall mount bracket. It also supports WiFi 6 (802.11ax) dual-band 2.4 GHz/5GHz connectivity. Fios Home Internet and 5G Home customers get the best experience thanks to optimization for Verizon customers that can save favorites, settings and TV on Demand purchases with a single sign-on account.
Its UI has a content-focused design, Stream TV makes it easy for viewers to discover the most exciting shows, movies and apps in one place.
What does Stream TV do?
Stream TV uses an instinctive Verizon UI that surfaces the best content from top streaming apps like Disney+, Netflix, Prime Video, Hulu and more. It organizes the viewer’s favorite shows so they can seamlessly pick up where they left off or dive into new content from the main menu. The design follows Verizon UI principles with bold text and streamlined organization, creating an eye-catching and easy-to-follow view that’s consistent across mobile, home and internet services. This way you can see what you have access to from multiple apps without having to search them individually.
Users get high end video performance
TV Stream provides support for 4K Ultra HD, HDR10 and HDR 10+ display formats. From premium services like Netflix and YouTube TV to ad-supported apps like Pluto TV and Yahoo, Stream TV features the top streaming apps from the Google Play Store. Renting or buying on-demand video is also available with direct-billing to a Verizon account.
