A Smart TV, also known as a connected TV or a hybrid TV, is a television with integrated Internet and Web 2.0 features. Most Smart TVs have features that work like apps on a smartphone. These apps connect to the Internet, streaming audio and video from services like YouTube and Netflix. Some Smart TV apps can even access social media accounts like Facebook and Twitter.
Many people who've purchased a Smart TV complain about the advertising shown on a TV they purchased. One way around this problem is to not connect the TV to the Internet, and use a device like a Roku.
