Want Netflix, YouTube and other Internet content on your TV? Buy one of these.
Watching content from the Internet on your TV is a great way to go. With a wide selection and the world at your fingertips, it’s an obvious choice.
To get it all to work though, the majority of us are still resorting to plugging our laptop or computer into our TV, to access the big screen. Yes, even if it’s inconvenient, most of us are doing this, with about a third of the crowd in Canada watching content on a tablet instead, according to the CRTC.
What about smart TVs? Just around 30% of Canadians are watching Internet content directly on the big screen.

But that number is certainly rising. Why? The convenience factor is high, and with content online increasing all the time, it’s a road many of us are bound to travel down.
To help you make a decision when in the market for a great smart TV, here are 3 of the best-reviewed as found on Amazon.ca, Tom’s Guide and CNET.
1) VIZIO D32f-E1 32-Inch 1080p LED Smart TV
A super thing about Vizio’s 32-inch 1080p smart TV is that it isn't going to break your bank. You can snatch one up for under $500 on Amazon, where it gets 4.5 stars out of 5, with ratings from over 700 people.
Vizio's set comes with Google Chromecast built, bringing you Vizio SmartCast TV which means you can watch Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, TVO documentaries and YouTube content right on your TV.

SmartCast TV was launched in Canada this past August, and viewers can use the new 2017 Vizio remote to view content.
If you’d rather use an app, this option is available as well. Download the SmartCast Mobile
and Android app to your smartphone phone, and use it as a touchscreen remote.
2) LG 65UH6150 65-Inch 4K Ultra HD Smart LED TV
This smart TV from LG also gets 4.5 stars, with ratings from almost 100 customers on Amazon.ca. With resolution that’s four times that of full HD 1080p, and WebOS 3.0- the company’s latest version of their smart TV platform- you can rest assured you're getting a solid product.

LG TV Plus is the app you can download to control it all. This application also allows you to view photos and play music and videos stored on your phone, on your TV.
Check out Amazon’s product description for more information.
3) Samsung Smart TV
Lifewire rates Samsung’s smart TV as the best overall, now on the market. The one drawback is the price.
Costing you well over $2000 on Amazon.ca , and about $2000 at Best Buy , it’s definitely not cheap.
Use Samsung’s smart TV interface with Smart Remote Controller voice navigation capabilities to get around on the Internet and see it all on the wall.
