What is Samsung Smart TV?

If you are anything like me, you are a mixed media consumer. I end up viewing all sorts of media at my computer while I am at my desk from video to websites and all sorts of stuff in between. Once I am done working, I like to get away from the desk since I tend to work as long as I am there.

That means I end up watching something with my family on TV and inevitably I start to check out Facebook or watch streaming video on my iPhone rather than watching what is going on. My kids like to watch shows about animals and if we can’t find anything on, they want to see we end up in the media room watching Hulu or Netflix to get some steaming action we can enjoy.

The thing about the sort of shows that my kids like is that they ask me lots of questions. For instance, my son asked me how fast a snail actually goes. I didn't know the answer so I took out my iPhone and looked up some information to satisfy his curiosity. That is all fine and good if you have a WiFi network that will reach all parts of your home or if you have a smartphone or other device to use. It’s not the most convenient though because we end up having to pause the show and my daughter wants to see what we are looking at to so we end up crowded round my iPhone screen looking at more information while the giant 120-inch movie screen in the room is ignored.

This is where Samsung Smart TV and other smart TV brands come in. With a Smart TV that has an integrated web browser you can search for information online right from the TV rather than having to take out your smartphone or other device and look it up. You can find all those other details on the animals or shows you are watching, if you are watching a sporting event you can flip over to the web during a commercial and see what else is going on in the sports world. Samsung Smart TV is a very convenient thing and allows you to shred more details about what you are watching with everyone in the room without having to crowd around a secondary device.

Other than being able to get more details on the show you are watching, you can also use Samsung Smart TV to access all sorts of widgets and apps. Samsung has a hoard of apps that let you do all sorts of things and get access to all sorts of content. You can stream Hulu or Netflix directly to your TV. If you are like me and have a giant movie screen in your media room, you can also opt for a Blu-ray player that will add Samsung Smart TV to your home theater and keep your projector or existing TV.

Samsung makes the apps and content on its Smart TV platform very easy to find with a Smart Hub. The hub has access to all sorts of different apps and content right in one place. You can find weather for the next few days, watch YouTube, check Facebook, and stream music and video content all from the Smart Hub. The best part for me is that I don't have to use the battery on my iPhone or pass it around for everyone to see the extra details I want. Samsung Smart TV also connects you to Google search to make fining that content that much easier. Some of the systems also come with a cool remote with a QWERTY keyboard to make searching and typing addresses a snap.
