You don’t have a smart TV, but you have a lot of videos on your hard disk or videos online that you’d like to watch on a bigger screen.  If you plug a PLAiR dongle into an HDMI port on your TV, you’ll be able to beam content wirelessly to your TV.  You’ll need to install a PLAiR app onto your mobile device (available at Google Play or Apple App store) or install a plug-in in the Chrome browser on your computer and then connect the PLAiR to your home network.  Once that’s completed, you’ll see a PLAiR logo on your video player; tap it and your video will automatically display on your TV.  You’ll be able to beam content stored on your computer, videos on network TV websites, or content on top video destination websites.  The PLAiR is available in black, red, or blue.  A single PLAiR is $99, or you can outfit all the TVs in your house at a discount:  two for $189 or three for $269.  PLAiR is on backorder; the black will begin shipping on June 4, 2013; the red and blue will ship on June 21, 2013.

  2. I got the one I ordered a couple days ago. So far I’m not impressed. Youtube videos seem to work ok, but when I tried on two different occasions to watch Big Bang Theory episodes from, they were horribly pixellated and unwatchably choppy. When I tried Hulu and the plugin for Chrome didn’t even give me the option to play it through PLAiR.
