Smart TV

Televisions that integrate the Internet and Web 2.0 features to provide a more interactive experience for users.  Also known as connected TVs, Smart TVs provide features like Web browsing; video-on-demand and video streaming via services such as YouTube, Netflix and Hulu Plus; Internet radio from services like Pandora and Rhapsody; social networking from sites like Twitter and Facebook; apps and games and more.

Smart TVs are also typically DLNA certified, enabling the sharing of movies, photos, music and similar multimedia content from other DLNA-compliant PCs, tablet computers, smartphones and similar devices.

While a number of television manufacturers are now selling Smart TVs, consumers with traditional TVs can receive Smart TV capabilities on their existing TVs via Smart TV-capable Blu-ray players and set-top boxes.  Other examples of Smart TVs include Google TV, Ubuntu TV and LG Smart TV.
