Televisions 101: What is a Smart TV?
Smart TVs, also called connected TVs, are televisions that have been integrated with certain Internet capabilities. They feature online media streaming applications, such as Hulu and Netflix, so you don't have to use other devices to watch streaming content. Along with media apps, many smart TVs come pre-installed with certain social networking apps as well. Some models have more advanced web-browsing features that let you check email, read news and browse the Internet like you would on tablets or laptops.
