No. Most streaming devices, such as the Amazon Fire TV Stick, are relatively portable. However, they are also minimally priced. If you have a TV that gets used daily, you probably want to keep a streaming device on that TV. If you have a TV that doesn’t get daily usage, such as in a den or patio, you may be able to move the streaming device from TV to TV.
It’s your preference!

To register, you’ll need your Wabash account number (which can be found on your billing statement), the last name on your bill, and your email address.

StreamTV is built as adaptive bit rate, meaning the app uses the bandwidth available and the device/screen you are using to determine the viewing quality.
If your show seems blurry or is buffering, you may not have ample bandwidth or your WiFi signal is weak. Because StreamTV uses the internet, you need WiFi coverage where you are using the device.
We recommend running an internet speed test. Here’s how. If you need more speed, let us know. You can try a higher speed 30 days for free.
If you find you need better WiFi coverage, Wabash can help. Give us a call.
