HBO isn’t TV, seemingly, which means that TV is not HBO by designation. Though that slogan works or does not work (and we could almost certainly go a few rounds over that one), one thing that TV definitely is (at the least nowadays) is SMART.
The standard telly, presumably saddened at being derided as an ‘idiot box’ for this long, has finally decided to ‘wise up’. In brief, a smart TV can now perform many of the same tasks as a pc or pc tablet, which is great when you have people over and wish to watch ‘The Best of Failblog’ on Netflix.
As well as housing any number of downloadable apps that hold fully interactive editions of Netflix, Facebook and numerous, many others, the smart TV also allows the viewer to surf the net, just like they may on an apple ipad.
Get this, Samsung’s new 22-Inch Smart TV will even astutely learn what you want to watch and suggest similar shows, it will then routinely seek through live broadcasts and make a selection of recommendations for you. I swear I am not making this up. I mean, I always thought TV could do more to pull its weight, but a Television that takes the effort from channel browsing!? I in no way thought I would see the day.
The Samsung 22 inch smart TV can be the only smart Television with the full catch-up service, a service that has BBC iPlayer, ITV player, Demand 5 and 4OD, meaning you’ll never miss out on your favorite shows again (unless you, like me, frequently forget to watch them and then iPlayer deletes them…The TV is smarter now, but I am still as dim, miserably).
You can also wirelessly link connecting your smartphone and tablet, enabling you to view whatever’s in your little screen, by transferring it to a big screen. I could go on all day with the sheer amount of cool things this Television does, but it appears odd to write about a awesome product if i could, in reality, be actively using it.
Hooking an Xbox or PS3 up to the screen is pure delight, however the fun does not end there; the Samsung 22 inch LED TV also features a crystal clear, full HD 1080p widescreen, that will craft a tremendous cinematic experience when hooked up to the Bluray player and a 5.1 Dolby Surround Sound system. You’ll be the envy of the neighbourhood. Unless they own a racing car, that is.
Oh yeah, they have built-in games. Did I mention that?
