Streaming with Blisstel Communications

Given that the maximum speed you can expect from an ADSL2+ connection is 20Mbps, you might not be able to stream all kinds of videos using your Blisstel broadband connection at all times. This is because data speed can vary depending on factors like distance from the exchange as well as the type of internal cabling your home or office uses.

While streaming SD content requires a steady speed of around 3Mbps, HD videos require around 5Mbps, and Ultra HD requires around 25Mbps. As a result, you can rule out streaming Ultra HD videos using your Blisstel broadband connection.

Streaming videos, movies and TV shows is not difficult, and you can watch some of the most popular TV shows and movies on your PC, laptop, TV, smartphone or tablet. Certain streaming service providers even offer compatibility with gaming consoles.

Some of the popular TV shows doing rounds on the streaming front include Homeland, Louie, The Red Road, Sons of Anarchy, American Horror Story, and Roswell.
