Netflix

Is it possible to stream Netflix or Prime on my 24-volt Television? I don't understand all this technology.

Also.... if you have a Kindle Fire and Prime membership, a laptop or a tablet, you can download certain movies and tv shows onto the device. Then with an HDMI cable which has the correct adapter for your device, you can play it back on your tv.

Streaming at an rv park is usually difficult because their internet connection is usually designed for email and web surfing. A hotspot might help, but it uses a lot of data.

Yep, most campground WiFi will not be good enough for streaming.
We use our cellphones as a hotspot, to stream since its almost always faster than campground WiFi.
What tv do you have and doubt that it's 24v.

We got a Sprint hot spot thru FMCA and use that in the smart tv to stream Netflix.

Have used in the S&B for working when we lost internet as well. $49.99 a month and unlimited with no throttling unless the tower gets congested.

Works great.

We use a Verizon Jetpack MIFI (8800L) for our internet access and a Roku stick for streaming Netflix, Hulu etc.

The Jetpack isn’t cheap at $75.00 per month for unlimited Internet but the service can be suspended for the months you aren’t using it and it provides home quality internet speed.

My wife needs high speed internet access anyway for her work so it was the best option for us.

It all depends on the TV you have. If the tv has HDMI inputs you will need is a Firestick, Roku, Apple TV or Google Chromecast.
If your tv does not have HDMI you can still get older Rokus that have RCA outputs.

You will also need internet access, some campsites will have wifi but your best bet is going to be using your mobile phone as a hot-spot.

Hi,

I stream Netflix on the road through a TiVo box, via my Verizon phone's hotspot. While they say my unlimited plan might be throttled after some level, I've never noticed it in my daily use.

When I upgraded my TiVo (which had a lifetime plan) several years ago, the old box moved to my office. I record movies, etc., on it or transfer them to the new TiVo before a trip. Pop the old box in the trailer and I'm ready to go, while the TiVo that stays at home continues to record all my favorite stuff there.

And by having the TiVo use the Verizon hotspot on the road, we can update our program guide in alignment with local stations and pretty much operate just like we are at home.
