Like smartphones, smart TVs offer numerous internet-connected services that you can’t get from a standard television. In a lot of ways, they’re like a computer – only without email and word processing functions – offering you extra features such as media streaming, apps, games and web browsing. In this guide, we’ll be taking a closer look at the features of a smart TV.
Browsing The Web
The built-in web browser in a smart TV enables you to access the internet, view web pages, watch videos and view photo slideshows – all from the comfort of your living room!
Whether you’ve got your friends round and you want to boogie to your favourite tunes or you want to watch a tutorial on the big screen, having access to YouTube through your television can prove invaluable.
Can’t be bothered to move rooms and switch on the computer? Smartphone out of reach? Well then you’ll be glad to know you can still catch up with your friends on Facebook or Twitter via your smart television –
In addition to the above, on-demand TV is one of the most attractive features offered by a smart TV – allowing you to catch up on your all-time favourite. You can choose from a selection of speciality channels to watch sports, films and music – whatever takes your fancy.
Here’s what else you can do with your smart TV.
Keep the whole family entertained with a wide range of games on your TV – or better yet, why not host a games night and take turns to play your favourite game on the television. It’s like a modern day version of board games.
Skype Friends And Family
If you live far away from family and friends, Skype is a great way of keeping in touch. But instead of everyone crowding around the webcam on your computer, or trying to fit everyone in the picture on your phone, keep in touch through the television.
Watch Home Videos And Create Photo Slideshows
Relive precious memories by watching your home videos through your TV. Simply hook it up to your video camera, press play and settle down with the popcorn. Maybe you’ve recently uploaded photos from a birthday or a friend’s wedding? Use your favourite snaps to create a slideshow for everyone to enjoy.
