Some TV's can play from an external hard disk or USB-stick.
Some TV's can play from the hard disk of PC in your home network (using something called DLNA).
What options does your TV have?
My name is Katie Spuhler. I am looking for some kind of device where I can store a LARGE amount of videos and pictures on it and to hook up to a TV and play without internet. Currently we use Apple TV's but they are very difficult and not user friendly in my opinion. Do you have any better suggestions to use than these?
Thank you and I look forward to hearing from you soon!
