Understanding Smart TVs For Gamers: Features, Benefits, and Choosing the Right One

Comments (0) | Views (108)

Smart TVs are so much fun and easier to use because you don't need a streaming device to stream your favorite TV shows and movies.

They're already equipped with Wi-Fi and some preloaded apps, allowing you to access whatever content you'd like directly through your TV. You don't need to connect them to your Wi-Fi, but when you do you can watch shows and movies on apps like Netflix, Go Latino TV, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video, and YouTube. You can also use social media, go on the internet, and play games right on your TV!

But with so many options available both in store and online, navigating the world of smart TVs can get overwhelming quickly. Fear not, in this article we will walk you through everything you need to know about smart TVs, their features, why get one, and how to choose the right one for you.

Important Features To Look For
When picking out a smart TV, it's important to think about what things it can do. From streaming capabilities, to 4K and smart assistants; we're going to go over the important features you should look for when buying your new smart TV:

Streaming Capabilities
Make sure the TV you're considering to buy is truly a smart TV and supports popular streaming services. Some modern TVs without Wi-Fi capability can be deceiving and look very much like a smart TV.

4K Ultra HD Resolution
If you want next level, home movie theater-like viewing experience, opt for a smart TV with 4K Ultra HD resolution. If you're on a tight budget, keep an open mind. 4K TVs aren't nearly as expensive as they used to be.

Smart Assistants & Voice Control
If you're into Siri, Alexa or Google Assistant on your smartphone, look at TVs that have built in support voice commands. You may learn to love it on your TV too! Choose one with your favorite smart assistant for ease of use.

Connectivity Options Through External Ports
Every TV is different and before you buy the one you've been eyeing; look to see the number and types of ports available for connecting external devices. You may want them in the future for gaming consoles, soundbars or a blu-ray player.

Reasons To Get A Smart TV Over A Normal Flat Screen TV
What's the difference right? Just spend less for that normal flat TV. Wrong! If you're a major streamer, sports fan or have kids, a smart TV is actually a better choice. Believe it or not, they're not that much more expensive than an ordinary flat screen TV either. After you purchase everything extra you'll need to stream, you might be spending the same amount if not more anyway! Here's some reasons you should seriously consider getting a smart TV over a normal flat screen TV:

Access To Online Content
The main reason why people look into getting a smart TV is to stream. Enjoy a vast library of movies and TV shows from the streaming services you subscribe to without needing additional devices.

You may not be thinking of this one, but using one device streamlines your entertainment experience. You'll eliminate the need for external devices or multiple remotes to keep track of.

Smart Home Integration
If you're into smart home devices, you'll love this. You can control compatible smart home devices like smart lights, thermostats, and security cameras directly from your TV. You won't even need to pick up your phone to turn the lights off for family movie night.

Interactive Features
There's more to smart TVs than just streaming. You can download other apps too like social media and games.

How To Choose The Right Smart TV
If you're not a techie person or it's been awhile since you've purchased a TV; finding one that's right for you can be overwhelming. So let's get you off on the right foot. Here's the things to look for when trying to choose the right smart TV:

Consider Your Needs
Before you start shopping, it's important to consider what your family's needs are. What's your budget? Or preferred screen size? Knowing these before you begin your search will help narrow down your options.

Research Brands & Models
Just like regular flat screen TVs, there's brands people love and brands people hate. Some models are good and some can be problematic. You'll know through comparing specifications and reading online reviews.

See It In Person
So, you find a TV like or maybe you're just having difficulty getting started. Stop into a local electronics store or even a mass retailer that sells TVs. See them in person for yourself. You'll get to see the picture quality and see how big they are in person before making any decisions.

Check For Deals & Discounts
Don't pay too much for your new smart TV. While shopping keep an eye out for sales, promotions and any special bundle deals to get the most bang for your buck.
