Admit it. You’re TV just sits there and has an old cable line coming into it. What if you could watch all your favorite YouTube videos and online movies on your TV? The TV is rapidly changing from a device that pushes information one way to a device that is interactive, with apps just like your iPhone and iPad. The question isn’t if you’re going to upgrade your TV to an internet TV, but when! Below we’ll discuss some of the most popular and highly rated internet TV devices available on the market.
Panasonic VIERA TC-P50GT25 50-inch 1080p 3D Plasma HDTV
Panasonic is one of the most trusted names in electronics and makes some of the best HDTVs on the market. This TV is one of the only fully functional 3D TVs available on the market. If you’re looking for a home theater, this HDTV will not disappoint. One thing we really like about it is the Infinite Black Panel technology which allows for super deep black hues and minimal reflection.
VIZIO XVT373SV 37-Inch Full HD 1080P LED LCD HDTV
Vizio is a much lesser known brand, but you won’t be sorry if you’re got one of these fantastic internet-ready HDTV’s in your living room! The Zivio LCD HDTV has Razor LEDTM backlighting which makes you feel like you’re in the movies. One of our favorite thing about this internet TV is it’s razor thin profile, which literally melts into the wall like a painting. When it comes to HDTVs, Vizio is a smart choice, but comes with a hefty price tag.
Samsung UN46C6500 46-Inch 120 Hz 1080p LED HDTV
The Samsung UN46C6500 provides a great mix of awesome HD graphics and internet TV. You get a huge 46 inch screen that can run tons of Samsung apps. This HDTV combines art and technology to be a beautiful piece of furniture for your home. 1080p HD resolution is amazing and blows away the low resolution you’ll find on other devices.
