As holiday deals are popping up everywhere, you may be thinking it is time to upgrade to a Smart TV. But is it really worth it?
Our short answer: Yes. Here’s why.
Easy Setup. Smart TVs make it easy to get started watching TV. Just plug it in, connect to your Wi-Fi, sign into your account(s) and ta-da, you’re watching TV! Some TVs like the Roku or Google TV even have free viewing channels built in, making the effort required for additional paid streaming services unnecessary.
One. Remote. Need we say more? Not only does having a Smart TV eliminate the need for multiple remotes, but the remotes are also VERY simple. Most even have voice control, like this one with built-in Alexa, so finding your favorite movie is as easy as talking. This feature is one of the greatest reasons that a Smart TV is the perfect upgrade even for Grandma & Grandpa.
Less cords. Let’s be honest, no one really enjoys sorting through that bundle of cords that resembles a bird’s nest when you set up a TV. Smart TVs only require one cord for power to access a world of entertainment.
Multi-purpose. An increasing number of Smart TVs are being equipped with web browsers. Imagine the possibilities of surfing the web on a 4K 50-inch screen!
If you’re not looking for a whole new TV, but still want the Smart TV experience, there are plenty of affordable options for you too. One of our favorites is a Google Chromecast. This simple device allows you to quickly turn any TV with and HDMI port into a Smart TV. It even includes Free Google TV Channels and access to the most popular streaming apps.
