Whether you want a TV with built-in smart connectivity for your living room (with apps and access to the usual suspects like Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime) or a model that’s just good enough to use as a secondary TV around the house, the big manufacturers like LG, Sony, Samsung, TCL, and Vizio all have offerings that can fit your needs.
