    What smart TV? 27th Feb 17 at 10:28 PM
    I plan to get new TV soon, and am thinking about a smart one.

    I have always had Sony Bravias in the past, but am not sure what the smart ones are like.

    I'm thinking og about 50 inches, and it will be on the wall.

    Any suggestions, or features to look for?
