In recent years, the popularity of smart TVs has skyrocketed with them becoming a staple of the modern home. Many brands have now entered the market and there is a vast selection of smart TVs available with each offering its own special features and capabilities.
With all these new features and options for consumers, it can be difficult to choose which TV to buy as it is easy to become overwhelmed with so much information. That’s why we put together this list of the top 3 TVs that you should consider buying in 2021. We have also included details about what makes each model unique and beneficial so that you can make an informed decision.
What is a Smart TV?
Essentially, a smart TV is a television set that is integrated with the internet usually via a home’s Wi-Fi and can download apps. Smart TVs act in a similar way to your smartphone, laptop, or tablet in that they allow you to stream music, TV shows and movies, surf the web, and scroll social media platforms including Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
A smart TV’s ability to connect to the internet is what really separates it from a traditional TV otherwise known as a non-smart TV. Like with traditional television, you can still watch terrestrial or satellite television channels if you have the appropriate aerial or satellite dish installed.
In addition to traditional TV channels, you can download apps for paid streaming services like Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, and Disney Plus as well as free video platforms like YouTube. Likewise, on-demand services like BBC iPlayer and ITV Hub can be downloaded and accessed for free so long as you paid your annual TV license fee. If you wish to play music through your smart TV, you can install music streaming apps like Spotify or YouTube Music.
Some smart TVs can even connect to your other smart devices such as your phone or tablet, which gives you the ability to view content like videos or photographs on a larger screen. For example, this could be used to show your vacation pictures to family members once you return from a holiday instead of them individually viewing the pictures on a small phone screen.
