Boost Your Entertainment Options with a Smart TV Stick

Access streaming services using one device with a simple interface. A smart TV stick from eBay is designed to fit most TVs with an HDMI port, allowing you to watch the content you enjoy in 4K video. Control your HDR content via a remote or use your voice to choose video games.

Can every TV stick handle 4K content?

No. Some TV sticks on eBay are designed for 4K content. If your TV is designed for 4K, it is beneficial to get a TV stick that will stream 4K videos. Several options support 4K HDR playback. Connect your streaming device to the Internet via an Ethernet port or use WiFi.

Can every smart TV stick make personalised recommendations?

No. If you want a TV stick that will make recommendations based on previous shows that you watched, there are options on eBay that do that. Some sticks can make recommendations based on what is trending.

  • Some TV sticks provide a personalised home screen on your TV. This puts the channels you like to watch up front, so you don't have to search for them each time you want entertainment.
  • A smart TV stick usually lets you delete shows that you watched recently. This also helps you to avoid skewing future recommendations and change the recommendations you are already given.
  • Several providers save information on everything you stream on your account. You can access this record at any time and clear it by going into your Account and Settings.
Can a smart TV stick be powered by the USB on a TV?

Manufacturers do not usually recommend that you power a TV stick through the USB on a TV. It needs much more power than a TV can provide. Plugging it into the USB port can cause damage to the firmware. The streaming device should be charged by using an adapter. Those that are available on eBay come with a power adapter and a USB cable. Plug the micro-USB end of the cable into the stick and then plug the cable into the adapter. The power adapter can then be plugged into a power source. Following these steps protects your device. Each smart TV stick may have a slightly different procedure, so refer to the manufacturer's instructions.
