Devices called smart TVs are models that can be connected to the internet to access streaming services, apps and other online content. The connection is established either via an Ethernet cable or, alternatively, wirelessly using Wi-Fi.

This makes features such as streaming content to the TV via tablet or smartphone and using the mobile phone as a remote control possible.
