LINKS TO THE STREAM DEVICE ETHERNET ADAPTERS MENTIONED IN THE TROUBLESHOOTING BULLET

For customers that have a streaming device that is not performing well based on WiFi coverage, there are two options:

1. BBTELBlast extender to extend wireless coverage.

2. Utilize an ethernet adapter to convert OTT device from wireless to wired.

Note: The links above are only “recommendations”. BBTELStream does not warrant or guarantee any 3rd Party Hardware.

USB POWER ADAPTER VS TV’S USB PORT

For an optimum viewing experience, customers need to utilize the USB Power Adapter supplied with the OTT Devices vs the USB port on the TV. On most TVs the USB port is powered down when the TV is turned off. This causes the OTT Device to lose power and therefore has to “reboot/power-on” each time the TV is powered back on. If the USP Power Adapter is used, the OTT Device never loses power and therefore the customer is able to watch TV much faster without having to wait for the OTT Device to power-on.

HOW TO CREATE AN AMAZON ACCOUNT?

Note: To use a FireTV, a separate account will be required.

Visit Amazon in your web browser. Hover your cursor over "Sign in" and click "Start here" on the drop-down menu that appears.

HOW TO CREATE A ROKU ACCOUNT?

To use Roku Device, a separate account will be required. Visit Roku to sign up.

INACTIVITY TIMEOUT VALUES

All streaming devices have a four-hour Inactivity Timeout value. After four hours of inactivity, a message will pop-up on the screen to ask the customer if they are still watching. If the customer does not respond to the message, the streaming device will close the BBTELStream TV application.

BANDWIDTH SAVER OPTIONS CAN OVERRIDE PAUSE LIVE TV

FireTV enables the Bandwidth Saver Option after 20 minutes of a paused application. This will override the 60-minute Pause Live TV feature of the BBTELStream TV app.

Roku enables the Bandwidth Saver Option after four hours of inactivity.
