If you love movies, music or video games, then you know there are tons of options out there when it comes to home entertainment services. In the past, all you needed was a pair of antenna to get all of the available channels. But now streaming services are creating their own exclusive content, and more TV channels are being created to entice people to sign up for cable. Netflix, Hulu, Direct TV, Vudu, and Amazon Prime are just a few sources of content you could have in your home, which makes it more confusing to control and manage.
