If the television is connected to the Internet, you can download apps, use streaming services such as Amazon Prime and Netflix, browse the Internet, browse the ARD media library and much more. In order to be able to connect your television to the Internet, you need a network connection on the television. Alternatively, you can also connect to the Internet via WLAN.

I would like to give you a short guide on how to set the television so that it is connected to the Internet. I will do this using my Samsung TV as an example.


A router in your home network is required to connect to the Internet. Configure the router and secure the WiFi. I have connected my TV to the WiFi. There is no need to lay a network cable. The WiFi speed is sufficient to stream HD videos from the Internet.

My TV is connected via WiFi and I can use it to watch HD films on Amazon Prime and Netflix without any problems. If the WiFi speed is not sufficient, try to improve the WiFi reception.

This works very well and you can increase the WiFi speed by locating the WiFi router correctly.
