Smart Televisions: The Basics - How to Get One & Save Money!

Movies, shows, and sports are a great way to unwind, relax, and escape the world, even if just for a bit. Televisions have come a long way since they were first introduced in 1927. First, it was the introduction of the remote and then it was the flatscreen, and now it is the smart TV. Televisions are constantly evolving to provide viewers a better experience. Smart Televisions are the latest and greatest thing to hit the market when it comes to the capability of televisions. You may ask, what exactly is a Smart TV?

What Makes a Smart TV?

Traditional televisions have limited capabilities, relying on antennas or the services of cable or satellite to bring shows and movies to viewers. A DVD or BluRay player can also be hooked up to play movies on DVD but that is the extent of viewing capabilities. Smart TVs offer so much more.

On a basic level, Smart TVs have an internet connection. This enables the television to not only be hooked up to your cable or satellite provider, but also to apps and programs such as Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, and so much more. Many Smart TVs also have a web browser built-in, so you can use the web just as you would on your computer.

Smart TV on a Budget
