Also FYI, if you have old Nintendo Wii or other gaming devices around or are buying the new Nintendo switch..note that these can be used with a tv that is not smart or Wi-Fi ready to access and online services. We have spectrum services for cable internet tv channels etc. We also have an Amazon account and Netflix. One thing about our cable company and many may be the same, we already had all Samsung brand smart tv's so when spectrum took over our area, we were told if we have Samsung smart tv's we do not need a set top box which is a monthly rental fee. I know a lot of people who really want to cut the cable cord. But I never will until a faster option and more reliable option comes out for internet, and channels. With the spectrum app, our daughter away at college or any of us on any device can use the cable app anywhere and watch all of our channels which include all ESPN and BBC, etc. Etc. Just like we do Netflix. to me paying for my cable service makes so much sense. Not only do have 300mps or faster internet all the time. I also have all these channels the app, and my favorite whole house DVR. something I will not ever live without, recording 6 channels at a time, and watching them whenever while ff all commercials, PRICELESS. But even if it was just the internet connection it would be worth it. Never goes out...ever.
Wow, are you going to tell people not to get a smartphone either. Just take an old Nextel and put a stick in it. Ok. For the price of an iPhone x i can get a 65 inch Samsung smart UH tv. Hard decision. Duh
During a lecture by the local sheriff, the sheriff strongly suggested to have your driver's license engraved on the TV. As in when they see a known thief driving by with a large unwrapped TV in their car they can look for ID on the set and call it in. No ID and they have to let the thief drive on.
One cannot program a Smart TV to fire off an App and and map to App's unique keypresses, such as with a Harmony Remote. So once again no customization to reduce key presses. Scroll and scroll...at least on Android TVs
I have a Sony 4K smart TV but use a Fire Stick to get my Netflix. I noticed in my router statistics that my smart TV is using about 3 to 4 GB of data over 30 days. So it appears that while not using this feature it is consuming bandwidth. I will try turning off the WiFi to see if that stops the flow.
