Smart TVs with Internet access now allow you to download and install apps you can view and use directly from your television, such as Netflix, YouTube, Pandora, Twitter, eBay, Facebook, and more. Most Smart TVs come with pre-installed apps by default, but if you’re using a Smart TV from brands such as Samsung, LG, and Vizio, you can download and install additional apps that can improve your experience as a user.
