Is a "Smart TV" something that I might use? This article explains what you can do with a smart TV and you can decide for yourself whether the features on a Smart TV are relevant to you. If you don't have a reliable and fast internet connection then you may as well stop reading this now. This is very important!
Samsung, LG, Toshiba, Sony and Panasonic have led the way when it comes to Smart TV technology. Like any new technology, it's also changing rapidly. In short a 2012 Smart TV offers the following features:
-The ability to watch internet TV stations like "7 plus", "ABC iView", "Bigpond TV" , "History Channel" and many more
-Live "internet streaming" of movies, television programmes and documentaries. No more video store. Select and click what you want to watch when you want to watch it right from your couch on your TV remote control.
-Internet browsing, RSS feeds (information from your favorite websites) and other internet based content via something commonly called a "Widget". Widgets are easy to find and install on your Smart TV.
-Play video files, music and photos stored on your computer network. You can see family photos stored on your computer on the high definition TV screen.
-Continual software updates via the interent to add functionality and new features to your Smart TV
A Smart TV is connected to the Internet either wirelessly or via an ethernet cable which accesses the internet via your broadband modem / router. It requires a certain amount of setting up, which isn't difficult, but some technophobes may have trouble with this.
