Smart TVs are setting the trend at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, NV.
The Smart TV Alliance—a universal Smart TV platform consisting of manufacturers like LG, Panasonic, and Toshiba—unveiled a new set of applications aimed at unifying your television-viewing experience with the Internet.
Over the next year, the Smart TV Alliance will be working towards creating a connected environment across all of its member television manufacturers. The end result will include thousands of applications from weather to news to games to social media—all from the comfort of your television’s remote control.
LG announced a new television experience for families in 2013, the features of which include:
- 3D video
- More and better content choices with updated digital rights management (DRM) features that reflect DRM requirements from content owners
The goal will see users able to load apps on one television, and when a second television is purchased down the road—even if it’s from a different manufacturer—they will be able to load the same apps and content from the Internet.
