Introduction to Smart TVs

Majority of TVs in the market today are smart TVs. Some come with smart features that are better than others such as integrated voice and motion control. Some come with numerous applications to make your TV experience a total entertainment. Others just come with a few apps just to fall in the category of smart TVs

They have inbuilt web browsers and majority of them can access applications such as Netflix, Amazon instant video, BBC iPlayer and Hulu.

Apart from media streaming, they also offer games and internet protocol television IPTV. IPTV refers to any video that is streamed to your TV through the internet. This can be in the form of continuous live channels or short clips.

Features within Smart TVs

Online features

The features of smart TVs will vary from one model or make to another. Most of them will give access to the popular social media sites such as twitter and Facebook. Some also give the user internet messaging services such as Skype.

Some come with superior webcams which give the user the prestige of holding a full screen video calling to friends and family.

The most used feature and probably the best according to most users is the ability to stream video on demand. Video on demand services include the free services such as YouTube that allow you to listen and download music audios and videos, to the subscription based ones such as Netflix.

Netflix offers subscribers access to a huge array of TV shows and movies available for streaming anytime. Other online services offered by most smart TVs are the catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer and Channel 4.

Apps and Accessories

Smart TV manufacturers are taking inspiration from modern smart phones and coming up with their own play stores and their own Smart TV app systems. This allows users to download and install extra applications to their features. S

amsung and Panasonic have taken this concept a notch higher. The Panasonic appstore offers a wide variety of games to download, as well as the video on demand and social networking services. They also come with other optional apps such as Smartphone applications and game controllers making it easy to play the games.

Some also come with an electronic touch pen that allows the user to write directly on the television screen. This can be used to leave messages for people in the house making it look like a pin up board.

Others come with BMI scales directly connected to the WiFi thus allowing the user to keep a regular check on their fitness and health.
