HBO isn’t TV, actually, which suggests that Television isn’t HBO by classification. Yet that slogan works or doesn’t work (and we could probably go several rounds over that one), one thing that Television definitely is (at the least nowadays) is SMART.
The standard tv, I imagine distressed at being derided as a ‘idiot box’ for this long, has eventually decided to ‘wise up’. In short, a smart TV can now present many of the same features as a computer or tablet, which is great when you’ve got people over and want to watch ‘The Best of Failblog’ on Netflix.
As well as housing any variety of downloadable applications that hold fully interactive editions of Netflix, FB and numerous, many others, the smart TV also allows the viewer to surf the net, quite as they might on an apple ipad.
Get this, Samsung’s new 22 inch Smart Television will even astutely learn what you want to watch and propose comparable shows, it’ll then automatically seek through live broadcasts and make a selection of suggestions for you. I swear I’m not making this up. I mean, I always guessed Television could do more to pull its weight, but a Television that takes the effort out of channel browsing!? I in no way guessed I would see the day.
The Samsung 22 inch smart TV can also be the only smart Television with the full catch-up service, a service which includes BBC iPlayer, ITV player, Demand 5 and 4OD, meaning that you’ll never miss out on your favorite events again (unless you, like me, usually forget to stream them after which iPlayer deletes them…The Television might be smarter now, but I am still just as dim, sadly).
You too can wirelessly link between your smart phone and tablet, enabling you to view whatever’s on your little display, by transferring it to a big screen. I could go on all day with the sheer quantity of awesome things this Television does, but it seems odd to write about a awesome product when I could, actually, be actively using it.
Hooking an Xbox or Playstation 3 up to the screen is pure delight, however the fun doesn’t end here; the Samsung 22 inch LED TV also features a crystal clear, full High definition 1080p widescreen, which will create an incredible cinematic experience when hooked up to a Bluray player and a 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound system. You’ll be the envy of our neighbourhood. Unless they own a racing vehicle, that is.
Oh yeah, these have built-in games. Did I talk about that?
