“I want to buy the latest Smart TV!” This is a phrase we come across often when someone around us is planning to buy a television these days. Once called ‘Idiot Box’, the Televisions have seen a major evolution. From bulky wooden boxes to sleek and stylish LCD’s to the latest concept of smart TVs, the technology has surely come a long way. The struggle to get the best smart TV home at the best price is real. Once we have got the prized possession home, we miss out on how to make the best use of it. Here are some tips to help you with it:
1. The World is On the Internet
Every smart device works on the internet these days. Most of the latest features of your TV would work smoothly when connected to the Internet. Be it streaming videos online or enjoying connecting with your loved ones over social media on a larger screen, all this will require a stable internet connection. So make sure you have a suitable Wi-Fi connection with the router preferably placed in the same room as the television.
2. Go Wireless
With latest technology comes advanced options of connectivity. The enhanced connectivity options get you away from the entangled wires and you can connect your accessories wirelessly and enjoy at your ease. From keyboards, headphones to gaming remotes connect all that you want and make sure you’re in for a comfortable experience. Play on!
3. Use Space Judicially
Just like our smartphones, the TVs also have some limitations. The bigger display ensures a great experience, but the storage capacity can be a bummer. With limited storage space, we need to prioritize the data to be stored in our Smart Boxes. Since the TVs usually come with a few pre-installed apps and you can surf videos and movies online, it’s advisable to only keep stuff which is not easily available. Even though the functionality looks similar, the televisions are not meant to be used like Smartphones. Installing a lot of apps can be a burden on the limited internal storage. So it’s advisable to refrain from downloading apps which won’t be used on a regular basis.
4. Make Use Of That USB Port
Now, this is a point that has been in discussion over a period of time. A feature prominent even in LCD TVs, USB ports are an integral part of the technology and should be used often. Since we have limited storage in our TVs, external storage devices play a crucial role when it comes to getting access to all we love. With the choice of content expanding massively, an external storage device is a bliss when it comes to wholesome entertainment.
5. Stay Updated, Stay Ahead
Just like smartphones and other smart devices, your smart TV also needs to be updated time and again. The latest software updates are meant to ensure a smooth experience by adding more features to the umbrella of entertainment. So never hesitate from upgrading your smart box to make it smarter.
You have to keep in mind that all smart technologies are dumb till the time you don’t use them smartly. So make sure you make the best of your smart TV by using it to its full capacity and maximizing the fun for yourself!
