A smart TV is a digital television that can be internet-connected to stream music and videos, browse the internet and view photos. Smart TVs are available as a stand-alone product. The operating system is pre-loaded or is available through the set-top box. The software applications are sometimes pre-loaded into the device or installed on demand via an app store or marketplace, in a similar manner to how the apps are integrated in smartphones. Regular televisions can also be made “smart” through add-ons such as Apple TV or Roku streaming device.
What are the benefits of a Smart TV?
The main benefit of a smart TV is access to many channels that offer TV programs, movies, and music without the need to subscribe to a cable or satellite service or use an antenna. Some smart TVs provide web browsing, gaming, and access to compatible media content stored on your computer. There is no need to connect a streaming device such as the Amazon Firestick.
Do you need a Smart TV?
Consider these 2 questions when you are deciding on whether to purchase a Smart TV for your home.
1. Do you own a TV without smart features but are satisfied with its picture quality and other features?
If you answered “yes’ to this question, a streaming device would be a great add-on for you, essentially turning your device into a “smart” device.
2. Are you buying a new TV and don’t have any other devices that provide access to internet streaming content?
If you answered “yes” to this, a smart TV is right for you.
