Do the words Apple TV, Roku, Netflix, Google TV and Sling sound familiar to you? These and similar services offer TV video streaming that will use your existing network wiring to send video content to your home TVs.
Don’t Overload Your Wireless Network
You might think that you do not need network wiring because you intend to use your wireless home network for streaming information to your home TVs and other devices. Be aware that video streaming can overload your home wireless network, limiting what content you can send and at what speed. For example, when streaming a movie using your wireless network, the network can become overloaded, resulting in annoying episodes of buffering.
To avoid these issues, have a CAT6 network wire installed at all TV locations for a wired connection that provides better security and a faster download speed.
Structured Wiring for New Construction
The network wiring infrastructure of your home is the pathway that all future technologies will use to send and receive information. Technologies are changing quickly and having proper writing done during the construction phase will prepare your home for these advances.
