What is a smart TV?
In Kenya, a smart TV is usually confused with digital tv. This means that you don’t have to buy a set-top box to start viewing channels.
Whereas digital TVs come with a built-in set-top box, a smart tv comes bundled with a set-top box coupled with an ethernet port for internet connection.
That is to say, with smart tv, you can stream, browse and watch anything online provided that you have an internet connection.
