How Can I Make My HDTV an Internet TV?

Save

You can surf the Internet from your HDTV without the use of a computer by connecting your TV to an Xbox 360, then connecting your Xbox to a modem. From the Xbox 360 you can check your Facebook account, watch Netflix movies and download music. This makes your TV a media center by allowing you to go from watching TV directly to going online without having to get up from the couch.

Things You'll Need

  • Xbox 360
  • HDMI cable
  • Modem
  • Ethernet cable
  • Plug the HDMI cable into the HDMI ports of the TV and the Xbox 360. Both sides of the HDMI cable are the same, so it doesn't matter what side goes into each device

  • Plug the power cord of the Xbox 360 into an electrical outlet.

  • Plug the Internet source into the modem. If you have DSL, you plug the phone line into the modem. If you have broadband, plug the cable line into the modem. Plug the power cord of the modem into an electrical outlet.

  • Connect the Ethernet cable into the Ethernet port of the modem, then connect the other side of the cable into the Ethernet port on the Xbox 360.
