Smart TV

Definition of "Smart" TV
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Smart_TV

Smart TV, which is also sometimes referred to as "Connected TV" or "Hybrid TV", is the phrase used to describe the current trend of integration of the internet and Web 2.0 features into modern television sets and set-top boxes, as well as the technological convergence between computers and these television sets / set-top boxes.

Hybrid TV is intended to extend the reach of multimedia content directly to the television set in a seamless, viewer-friendly manner and to enable the TV viewer to more conveniently access both broadcast digital content (especially HD) and Internet multimedia content (including Internet TV and IPTV) on a TV set using a single remote control/box and a single on-screen interface.
