Since the emergence of television, it has been main source of entertainment. With the technology development, smart homes and smart offices appeared with smart TV being an integral part to it.
The major difference between traditional televisions and their “smart” counterparts is that the later includes internet capabilities, which allow users to access the web, stream their favorite shows, and share information with other devices. These features are quickly making traditional TVs obsolete, with over 70% of the TV shipments in 2018 being smart TVs.
By 2024, estimates suggest that quantity of smart TVs purchased could climb to as high as 250 million units, as “smart” capabilities become an increasingly standard feature of newer television products.
The global smart TV market expected to reach USD 292.55 billion by 2025, according to a new report by Grand View Research, Inc. The introduction of 4K resolution-equipped televisions, coupled with the shifting preference toward OLED and QLED displays, is expected to emerge as a major trend in the smart TV industry.
This unique and pleasant device combines some of the most promising and needed tech trends.
Sure, in the end, what a TV was invented for? To watch.
Streaming services’ apps are often pre-installed on smart TVs, so that the user wouldn’t need to use any other devices to get access to content libraries and all the streaming services’ features.
For the most part, smart TV interfaces are designed to be simple and easy enough for anyone to use without training or tutorials (after all, lots of people check out display TVs before buying). Still, sometimes you just do not want to hunt and peck — and that’s where voice search comes in.
As a common feature in newer smart TV remotes, voice search turns navigation into an easy, one-click task, no matter what you are looking for. But be aware that certain platforms offer more robust search tools than others, and remote microphones are not always great at understanding your voice, so patience is important.
The growing popularity of smart homes has supplemented market growth as smart TVs help in enhancing the content viewing experience. As the home entertainment sector is paving its way in smart homes, the market is expected to witness increased demand over the next nine years. Large screen televisions are expected to capture substantial share fueled by rising consumer aspirations and affordable price points.
Not all smart TVs are created equal. Perhaps the TV you like does not have the best operating system, or maybe you just don’t have the cash to pony up hundreds for a shiny new screen. If that sounds all too true, set-top boxes and streaming sticks are great alternatives that offer nearly all the functionality of a high-end smart TV at a fair price.
