Macs are great for gaming, streaming TV and movies, but they can also be used for streaming music, movies and TV shows.
So why not build your own streaming TV box?
This article explains how.
If you’re looking for a simple Mac-based streaming TV setup, you can start with our guide to Mac streaming TV sets.
Mac streaming TV lets you connect a Mac to a TV, and it also lets you stream TV shows and movies to your TV.
The TV will then be able to detect and play any TV shows or movies that are on the local network and then stream them to your Mac.
In this guide, we’ll show you how to turn your Mac into the ultimate streaming TV kit.
If you’re new to streaming TV, here’s how to get started:1.
Find a Mac with a dedicated wireless network You can also connect a mac to a wireless network, which is what most people do with a Mac.
For example, if you’re living in a country with very poor internet connectivity, you might need to use a hotspot.
A Mac with dedicated wireless networks allows you to set up your home network to receive TV signals.
You can set up a wireless hotspot on your home’s router, which will allow your Mac to access a wired network.
Install the latest macOS 10.12.5 You’ll need the latest version of macOS (10.12) to get your Mac’s wireless hotspots up and running.

This will allow wireless signals to be sent from your Mac directly to your router.

Connect to your wireless network If your router isn’t supporting Wi-I, you’ll want your TV to be connected to a Wi-Fis wireless network.
This will let your Mac know when the TV is connected to the network.
To configure your Wi-Wis network:Open your Mac up to your home computer, and locate the “Apple Wi-WiFi” app.
Open the app.
Tap “Settings” on the bottom left of the app’s interface.
