Best Features of a Smart TV

1) Curved TVs can give you an immersive experience by wrapping around your field of view. This type is perfect for gamers and movie buffs who want to feel like they’re in the action or on-stage with their favorite band. For those who enjoy watching sports, curved screens also offer more screen space without having to scroll across the screen as often because it’s curved towards your eyesight.

Smart Television Features

2) OLED displays don’t need backlighting which causes less glare than LCDs do, so there’s no problem seeing what’s on your screen even in a bright room or outside in sunny weather. This saves you money because OLED TVs are cheaper to produce, so manufactures can pass the savings onto you.

3) HDR is great because it enhances colors and makes everything look brighter while getting rid of shadows and dark areas in the picture during playback. To find out which TV supports this feature, make sure to check for Ultra HD Premium certification on its packaging.

4) Freesat support allows customers to view live over-the-air broadcasts without having to buy an antenna or subscribe to cable or satellite services.

5) Twin speakers provide high-quality stereo sound that ranges from 20 Hz up to 40 kHz since they’re virtually no different than regular speakers. If you’re concerned about sound quality, the solution is to buy a separate home theater system or soundbar.
