What is a smart TV?
almost all new television sets can now be connected to the internet, or your existing set can be cheaply upgraded with a plug-in box, allowing you to watch endless box sets and blockbusters from streaming services such as Netflix and amazon Prime video as well as watch Youtube.
Set up wireless music
enjoy your digital music collections (itunes, spotify, etc) with one of the latest streaming stereo systems. Using either bluetooth or Wi-fi, they let you play songs wirelessly from your smartphone to one or more speakers around the house. You can turn the whole house into a disco, or play different songs in each room.
Many new Music systems have ditched the radio, but free apps such as bbc iplayer radio and tunein allow you to stream your favourite stations using bluetooth
