Smart TV


What is a Smart TV?

A Smart TV is a television that has built-in Internet access, either by a direct, wired Ethernet connection or built-in Wi-Fi to connect to a home network for Internet access. It combines the common features of a regular TV and those provided by a computer; offering a range of services from regular television viewing to streaming content via the Internet, using a range of apps you can select right there on your screen with your remote control. Think smartphone on a larger scale.

What is a Smart TV?

Besides the traditional functions of television sets, smart TVs (sometimes referred to as connected TVs or hybrid TVs) can also offer access to various free Internet TV channels and streams, online interactive media, “over-the-top” services such as Netflix, and even access to media (photos, video or music) stored on your home network. The software applications or apps can be preloaded into the device or updated/installed on demand via an app store or app marketplace, in a similar manner to how apps work in modern smartphones.
