The prospect of going shopping for a new television set in the recent years has become quite a hurdle because of an ever widening array of options for Smart TVs and many other new breeds of the HD TV. And while many would argue that a Smart TV is not much of an upgrade to previous HD TVs, a Smart TV set is actually redefining your typical TV viewing experience – bridging the gap between the Internet and televisions and integrating it into modern lifestyles.
Smart TVs actually offer an undeniably longer list of capabilities especially if you know how you can take advantage of its specs and features. Although the Smart TV has not yet become the standard television set, the Smart technology as with many other “smart” electronics are slowly becoming an essential part of this generation’s households.
What is a Smart TV?
Initially called “connected TVs,” a Smart TV is a modern TV that enables its users to connect to the internet and function as a computer, making online interactive media access, media streaming and USB drive or external storage device content access possible.
In contrast with traditional televisions, Smart TV focuses on the delivery of online content in addition to traditional broadcast.
