smart TV

(redirected from smartTV)

smart TV

An Internet-enabled TV set that supports movie streaming apps such as Netflix, Amazon and Hulu. Also called a "connected TV," a smart TV may include a browser for general Web surfing and also be able to execute games and other applications. A QWERTY keyboard may be built into the remote control; however, some smart TVs allow tablet apps to work simultaneously with the TV to display the program guide, control the set and offer additional information.

If the user wants cable TV, and the TV does not support CableCARDs, a cable set-top box is still required. However, a smart TV eliminates the set-top box for the streaming services that are built into the TV.

The Convergence Everyone Talked About
For years, people have touted the convergence of computers and entertainment. With the smart TV, it arrived. However, there is no universal platform, and extra set-top boxes may still be required if a new content provider enters the market or a new feature is invented. See Android TV, Fire TV, Roku, Apple TV, digital media hub, HDMI ARC, HTPC and tablet.
