Smart TVs are de facto in 2021. These days it’s almost difficult to find one with a barebones interface. Even if a product doesn’t use a shared platform like Roku or Google TV, it probably has a proprietary one, like LG’s webOS.

It can even be tempting to choose a TV based on its smart UI. Theoretically, you’re spending less than you would by adding a separate streaming device, while simplifying the installation process to boot — no need for extra power, audio, network, or HDMI cables. You might also get instant integration with your phone or smart home platform of choice, and a good fallback if you do end up buying a stick or set-top.
