Any TV can be smart with the right mediacaster
HDMI has been standard on TVs for a decade now, so there’s no need to buy a smart TV. You can connect to all your streaming services way, way cheaper than the four-figure sticker of a new smart screen. Okay, so you have an HDMI port. Buy a Roku. Or a Chromecast. Or an Amazon Fire TV Stick. They’re pretty cheap, and they make streaming ludicrously easy. Heck, if you don’t have a TV, go buy one from 2007 on a resale site like Letgo or eBay for less than the cost of dinner. (Let’s be honest, any improvement in graphics since 2007 is negligible, and still light years ahead of what you grew up with.) Plug in your streaming widget, and watch Hulu, Netflix, Amazon Prime, and more on your fancy viewing machine. Even if you don’t subscribe to any streaming services, you can still run free channels like YouTube, Crackle, PBS, and music services like Pandora and Spotify. It’s the internet: on your TV!
