In search of the perfect
Have you ever stopped to wonder what’s so smart about “smart TVs”?
Is the TV that you currently own a smart TV? And what value does a smart TV really give? I had to find out.
The first step was to look around the web for the definition of smart TV. After looking up Wikipedia and a few other dictionary definitions,
the consensus was that a smart TV has internet connectivity, runs on an operating system, and comes with its own app service.
But now the question was, out of all the smart TV brands out there, which one makes the best smart TV?
How to choose the right smart TV
The biggest value of a smart TV would be the ability to enjoy content beyond regular TV channels. A smart TV with your favorite VOD services such as Netflix, Amazon, YouTube plus music streaming services like Spotify, and even various games and sports content to enjoy as you please. Even paid cable and satellite broadcasting that used to only be available with a set-top box are now available to watch on smart TVs – you just need to install the app that cable or satellite broadcasting company provides. And if you’re already subscribed to those services, you can skip the tedious installation process.
※ An internet connection and subscription for content service is required.
Quick and easy search
Another good tip to remember when looking for the best smart TV is to find one that lets you search through content with ease. With the endless amount of content available online, it’s gotten a lot harder to choose what to watch so having a convenient search function is important.
But no matter how great the features are, everything becomes pointless if the Smart TV is inconvenient to use.
A great smart TV should automatically detect any device you connect via HDMI and eliminate the need to use several remote controls. Gone are the days of frantically searching for your remote controls. With just the TV remote, you should even be able to play/pause content streaming from your set-top box.
Think about it, you can watch a movie on your phone on the way home from work and effortlessly continue watching it on your TV screen as soon as you get home. That level of high-tech capability would make you feel like a character in a sci-fi movie.
At the end of the day, it’s about what consumers want. The best smart TV is easy to set up, with simple connections to other devices. It needs to be easy to browse content, and there should be room to personalize. And above all, it needs to have easy usability all around.
