In contrast, also known as CTV or connected TV, a Smart TV can be described as a traditional LED TV set with interactive Web 2.0 features and integrated internet that enable viewers to stream videos and music, view images, and browse the internet. A Smart TV can also be defined as a technological merging of the TV set, computers, and a set-top box.
