1) One need to have good Fiber broadband for uninterrupted streaming
2) For Firestick- Hotstar ( This provides many channels free of cost (AajTak HD, ABP news most of the channels free. One can avail annual premium channels too, otherwise all serials are saved free of cost- watch any time)
3) Sony Liv- For All Sony channels and shows
4) Zee5- For Zee All channels and shows you can watch anytime
5) Voot- For Color Viacom channels
6) You can side load JioTV this will make all live channels available (this is this bit clumsy as JioTV is not officially available on Firetv but works)
7) Amazon Prime videos of you have a Amazon Prime Account.
8) Netflix
9) NextGTv on firestick for many free channels
10) YuppTV

Two questions- Can anyone tell me whether I have a smart TV or not? The model no. is KDL-42W670A. If it’s not then what exactly do I need to purchase to make it a smart tv? I mean the lowest cost option. And secondly, does that Thop tv contain all thg Bengali channels?

Infact, Thop Tv cam be installed on your phone as well and you can cast content using a casting App. So effectively don’t need a fire stick as well.

Nice. I am using it … Its much better than SD similar or comparable to HD quality.  Haven’t tried 4k content.

Where do I find 4k content ?

Is 8mbps internet speed(bsnl adsl) enough to watch 1080p content on tv?

Let me break down the math for you.
The bit rate for streaming a 4K video goes to a worse of 8000 kbps to a best of 16000 kbps and is maintained at around 14000 to be called a good 4K steam.
Considering the average of 14000 kbps it means you need to have a broadband line speed of at least 14 Mbps, even in worst case scenario of 8000 kbps you need to have a broadband line speed of 8Mbps to stream without buffering pauses.
It doesn’t depend on what google or amazon or what ever website support is over here, we are talking about limitation of your line speed and not the website capability.
