Don’t forget to make some popcorn!
For the traditional movie watcher, the first step to any ultimate movie night is to make sure your TV is setting you up for a cinematic experience with a 4K streaming-friendly screen in the right size for your space. Even better? Download the Roku app and use the built-in Roku system right from your TV!
The full experience
Small, sleek, and mighty: a soundbar completely ups your setup. Having rich, high quality sound immerses you in whatever you’re watching. Find a soundbar that has a streaming system built-in. You’re able to stream your favorite content directly to your TV from the gadget at lightning speed once you connect it to your Bluetooth or WiFi.
Next level audio
Ready to level up even further? Add wireless surround sound speakers to your TV and soundbar setup for an extra audio boost. But don’t blame us if scary movies become even scarier.
We’re all feeling a little cooped up lately. If you’re thinking about taking movie night to your yard, watching on a smaller device like a tablet can make for a memorable and easy watching session under the stars.
Outdoors but louder
Use a portable speaker that can connect to the device you’re using to get the full outdoor experience. Just connect, lay back, and enjoy!
Keep it charged up
Think ahead. Make sure you have a portable battery so you don’t get yourself in a pickle by letting your device run out of juice during the best part of your movie. Bonus if it’s a dual port!
