OK- I go years between TV change outs. Everyone tells me to get a smart TV. OK, but then I ask why? I don't want to use my TV as a computer. But my wife tells me if we had a smart TV we could get all of our Netflix movies right into the TV on demand without having to go out to the mailbox as we do now. We're lazy & Netflix never gets here on time!
Here's what I need to know but can't seem to find the answer. If I have Netflix going directly into my TV, is the signal coming in to my TV from the Satellite service (we have dish) or is it coming in through my wireless internet connections, (we have Verizon wireless phone & internet) This is important, because if it comes in through my wireless internet connection, it will create a very large over run of the monthly usage allowance Verizon wireless allows me. I HOPE MY QUESTION IS MAKING SENSE TO SOMEONE. While I would like to have a smart TV, is it worth it for me. I have no intention to use my TV as a computer, I have no interest in hooking up to the TV all sorts of other equipment, and I don't see any advantage to the Netflix if it's going to kill my budget. So do I really need a smart TV or should I put that extra cost for a smart TV into just a regular LED TV but a larger size than the 47" Smart TV I'm looking at?
