What is streaming TV?

A streaming TV service delivers video programming, live or on-demand through an app or online website over the Internet. The majority of these streaming TV services operate as a subscription-based model and require a monthly payment to access content. But most do not require a contract or long-term commitment.

Can I watch live TV outside of my home?

It depends on the service, but most streaming TV options do support live viewing outside of the home. See the charts above for more information.

Can I still watch local channels?

It depends on the service, but some do have local networks available in their main channel lineups or as add-on packages. See the charts above for more information about local channels and visit each service’s website for more information.

Will I still have access to my watchTVeverywhere content?

No. Once your subscription to TV services through Pioneer Connect ends, you will no longer be able to use your watchTVeverywhere login. However, many of the streaming and satellite options offer a similar experience with their service.

Do I need to purchase new equipment?

Many of the available streaming services should work on the connected device(s) you have in your home.

Will I need to upgrade my internet speed?

Most streaming TV services recommend a minimum speed of 25 Mbps to allow for multiple streams and other connected devices to work simultaneously. Give our team a call to chat about your bandwidth needs to make sure you’re getting the most out of the services you subscribe to.

What if I do not have Internet service from Pioneer?

Some TV services may not require an internet connection, like DISH. However, the majority of streaming TV platforms run over the internet and a require a connected device to stream content. Pioneer has the most reliable network and lowest everyday prices in town. We’d love to chat with your about your service needs.

Will my new streaming TV service appear on my Pioneer bill?

No. These services are all offered by third-party companies.
