HBO is not TV, actually, which means that Television is not HBO by classification. Though that slogan works or doesn’t work (and we could probably go a few rounds over that one), the one thing that Television definitely is (at least nowadays) is SMART.
The humble tv, presumably distressed at being derided like the ‘idiot box’ for so long, has at last decided to ‘wise up’. In brief, a smart TV can now perform many of the same capabilities as a pc or tablet, which is excellent when you have people over and need to stream ‘The Best of Failblog’ on Netflix.
As well as housing any variety of downloadable apps that contain fully interactive versions of Netflix, FB and many, many others, the smart Television also allows the viewer to browse the web, just like they might on an iPad.
Get this, Samsung’s new 22-Inch Smart TV will still wisely learn what you want to watch and suggest related programmes, it’ll then automatically seek through live broadcasts and make a selection of options for you. I swear I’m not making this up. I mean, I always guessed TV could do more to pull its weight, but a Television that takes the effort from channel browsing!? I never guessed I would see the day.
The Samsung 22 inch smart TV is also the only smart Television with the full on-demand service, a service that has BBC iPlayer, ITV player, Demand 5 and 4OD, meaning you’ll never miss out on your favorite programmes again (unless you, like me, frequently forget to watch them after which iPlayer deletes them…The Television is smarter now, but I am still as dim, sadly).
You can also wirelessly link connecting your smartphone and tablet PC, enabling you to view whatever’s on your little screen, by transferring it to your big screen. I could go on all day about the sheer amount of cool things this Television does, but it seems odd to write about a cool product when I could, in fact, be actively using it.
Hooking an Xbox or PS3 up to the screen is pure delight, however the fun doesn’t end there; the Samsung 22 inch LED Television also features a crystal clear, full HD 1080p widescreen, that will generate 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 the neighbourhood. Unless they own a racing vehicle, that is.
Oh yeah, they have built-in games. Did I reveal that?
