Two billion hours of Netflix video were streamed in the last 3 months of 2011 and currently approximately 47.4 million people watch video on the Internet. OMG, that’s huge, and still growing! Have you ever noticed when you watch these streaming videos on your TV, computer, or other electronic device that the picture can freeze up? It happens to me all the time when I stream a Zombie movie through my Xbox Live connection. It usually is not Netflix or my Internet service provider’s fault. Probably too many devices are vying for seniority so to speak regarding your wireless service. This is becoming an increasing problem as my spose works for home on his laptop, my son plays more on the computer and iPod, and I blog my life away over our wireless network!
Western Digital’s My Net™ Family of Dual-Band Routers with Exclusive FasTrack™ Technology prioritizes audio and video on your home network, ensuring your video always looks good. And when paired with a WD Live TV for accessing video streaming apps and a My Book Live for watching home movies, you’ll have a complete streaming video solution.
That was a mouthful! One of the great things that you can accomplish with this bundle is prioritization of users. Even though I think I am the priority, my spouse needs to be able to work and earn the money to pay for all our Internet activities and electronics. So he needs to have top priority in the chain of bandwidth users. And I come next, unless my son is working on a school project, but he is only 9, so I am safe for a few years. But if it is the weekend, and the boys are playing, I do not want my Zombie movie frozen or interrupted because of Wizards 101 taking my bandwidth by my son!
