The world of technology is always looking for the “next big thing”, and that’s never truer than when entertainment is concerned.
There are plenty of failed technologies that could have easily taken the world by storm when it comes to entertainment; Betamax and HD DVD are just some of the examples.
Nowadays when you’re looking for smart TVs at appliancesdirect.co.uk, there are a few options to choose from – some have been around for a while, like HD TV, which show no signs of going out of fashion and falling out of favour any time soon. Although some of the technologies are a little more “out there” and it remains to be seen whether these types of TV will take off in a way that Minidisc didn’t manage.
Smart TVs were absolutely everywhere at conferences like CES last year, and all the biggest manufacturers are getting in on the act. Some of the biggest selling Sony TVs around at the moment are Smart TVs, and there’s a pretty strong case for them, so it’s easy to see why.
The promise of all kinds of entertainment at the touch of a button (…or, a wave of a finger in some cases…) makes the concept of Smart TV extremely appealing to gadget junkies – but what is it, and more importantly, is it worth it?
No One Answer
All the main manufacturers define Smart TV differently which doesn’t help.
The general consensus is that they’re designed for content consumption, and run apps; essentially this kind of model makes it easier for more people to get hold of more music, films and TV than ever before. This is usually done through a connection to the internet.
In answer to the whether Smart TVs are worth it though, right now it’s unclear if they are worth the money, as they are considerably more expensive than their standard and HD equivalents…but as we all know, the world of technology moves so quick that it won’t be long before more intelligent technology is made readily available, and for less money.
