LG has unleashed a fantastic new line of smart TV's this year, they are great to look at and are full of awesome features. Exactly what is a "smart TV" and why would I want one?
A smart TV will open up with a home page screen that has several "Apps" available. These apps can stream movies, music, TV shows, and more right to your TV. For example, Netflix, is one of the apps available on an LG smart TV. Netflix is a paid monthly service, you go to their website and sign-up for one of their accounts which starts at $7.99 per month for streaming. Once you have your account, you can sign into the TV and put your account information in and watch all of the movies and TV shows that Netflix has available. In addition to the Netflix app, there are also several more such as Hulu, Vudu, and many others. Vudu, for example is a movie rental program, once you sign up for an account with them then you just pay as you rent movies. There are also other apps like Facebook and Twitter that you can access through the smart TV, as well as many others. The LG smart TV can also access the internet with an online search for internet browsing from your TV and it comes with an app that will work the TV through a smart tablet or smartphone.
As you can see, owning an LG smart TV can open up a whole new world of TV watching and online experiences. We have had customers who only purchase the TV and don't even have a cable box or Blu-ray player, they only use the apps to watch movies and TV shows. The cost of a smart TV can be a more than one without these features, but the added benefits can outweigh the cost. If you currently have an older TV, you also have the option of purchasing an LG smart Blu-ray player that will allow you to access the same features on your current TV. <p> For more information call Carters Audio Video today 479-646-5901.

Note: In order for this system to work you have to have a good internet connection and the system works best if the internet is hard-wired to the TV.
