Streaming and Satellite

Our Customer Service Specialists can answer your questions


Like cable TV services, streaming services can give you access to live TV channels presented in real time. The difference is that streaming services bring the channels to you via an app over your internet connection rather than through cable.

Streaming is cost effective and portable with month-to-month contracts. Streaming apps provide local channels, live sports, the most popular networks and more!

No matter what streaming app or device you use to display the content, you will not have a great experience if your internet connection is too slow or unreliable. Make sure you have a Fiber to-the-Home internet connection from Zona to maximize your streaming enjoyment.

Think about which channels you now watch most often, then pick the streaming app that offers those channels. Ask for a copy of Zona’s Streaming App Comparison Guide to help with this process.

To take advantage of streaming, you’ll first need a way to display the content on your TV. 

Zona recommends using Roku devices as your streaming device manager.  You will need a device on each television. Rokus are available at all major electronic stores and online.

These devices help access the streaming apps quickly and easily and keeps them all in one place.  They also receive software updates daily, keeping you up to date on all the latest apps available and with the latest features.

TVs of all ages can be used to stream content. Even older TVs can use adapters to install device managers. Each TV in your home will need a way to stream your applications.
