 What’s the Big Deal?
Smart TVs are all the rave today. One the best thing about them is that they come pre-loaded with useful apps such as streaming services. These services allow you to watch more than what you would find on regular television programming. You can watch movies, play games, listen to music, surf the web, and more. You may find apps such as Netflix, Hulu, and Pandora pre-loaded on your new TV. 

Ease of Use

Smart TVs should be easy to set up. It should be as simple as plugging it in and setting up an internet connection. Many models will come with an easy-to-use interface that will take you through setup step-by-step. After you set it up, you can then just turn it on and watch it like a normal television. There are also models that have internet connectivity, which is needed to run apps like Hulu, Netflix, and Pandora. Everything you used a PC for can now be done on your large smart TV.

 Fun Features

There are plenty of awesome features to look out for when purchasing a smart TV.  It may be hard to keep your head clear when you have no idea what you are looking for in the first place. You should begin by pinpointing the needs of you and your family. Most smart TVs come pre-loaded with apps, as I’ve already said, and others allow you to download them on your own. 
You should also consider the size and quality of the TV. Think about the room you are going to put it in and how far back you are sitting from the TV. The best display is the 4K Ultra Resolution. It has a resolution four times greater than 1080 HD, which is the cheaper, popular model. The 4K model is more expensive, but worth it if you are looking for a crisp picture. 

Smartphone Connectivity

With all of the technological advances these days, one that stands out is the ability to connect your smartphone to your television. You can share content between devices, it gives you the ability to connect to apps, and even use your phone as a remote if yours disappears. 
Smart TVs have always been considered a luxury device. Sure, the price may be a little high, but it’s well worth it if you use multiple streaming devices and gaming consoles. You can use it as a workstation, movie center, connection center, and picture viewer all at once.
