OK... now let's get to it!
Q&A > Why Won't My Smart TV Work With My New Internet Provider?
This week's question comes from Ted who says, "I just switched internet providers and now none of my Smart TVs seem to be working. Why?"
When changing internet providers, consumers may not realize they'll need to reconnect all of their devices to the new network after the switch.
Especially if you're renting a router, your network's name and password will often change and those new credentials will need to be entered into your Smart TVs, streaming devices, mobile devices, and smart home gear before they can get back online.
Those who own and manage their own WiFi routers can usually avoid this simply by keeping the same network names and passwords. But folks like Ted will need to dig into the settings menus or owners manuals of their gadgets to get back to streaming.
