Why Do You Want to Convert Your TV to Smart TV?

If you're wondering what a smart TV is and why it's important, this article will provide you with the answers. In short, a smart TV is a television that can connect to the internet and stream content directly from services like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube. Smart TVs have become increasingly popular in recent years as more people turn to stream services for their entertainment needs rather than watching cable TV or DVDs.

The main benefit of these devices is convenience. You don't need any additional equipment (like an external box) because it's all built into your TV! If you own an LED LCD/LED/LCD display but would like to upgrade it so that it can connect with Wi-Fi networks at home or work, or if your current set doesn't come equipped with this feature at all, then converting it into a smart model may be worth considering as an option.


Devices for Converting an LED TV into a Smart TV

There are several devices that can help you convert your LED TV into a smart TV. Here are some of the most popular options:



Roku is a streaming media player that allows you to watch movies and shows on Netflix, Hulu Plus, and more. To connect Roku to your LED TV, follow these steps:

1. Plug one end of an HDMI cable into any available HDMI port on your TV or receiver

2. Plug the other end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the back or side of your Roku device, depending on the model

3. Connect your Roku device to the internet using either a wired or wireless connection

4. Enjoy streaming your favourite movies, TV shows, and other content directly to your TV with Roku's user-friendly interface and extensive selection of channels.

Amazon Fire TV Stick

Amazon Fire TV Stick offers access to over 500 channels including HBO Go/Now (and other cable channels), Spotify music service, and more than 15 million movies/TV episodes from Netflix (with 4K HDR support). To connect your LED TV to the Amazon Fire TV stick, follow these steps:

1. Connect your LED TV to the Amazon Fire TV stick using an HDMI cable.

2. Turn on your LED TV and switch it to the correct input channel (the one you plugged in your Amazon Fire TV stick).

3. Press "Home" on your remote control and select "Apps". Scroll down until you find "Amazon Prime Video". Select "Amazon Prime Video" and press enters on your remote control or click on it with a mouse if you have one connected.

Google Chromecast

Google Chromecast lets users cast content from their mobile devices onto their big-screen TVs using Wi-Fi connectivity instead of HDMI cables like other streaming devices do. However, this means there's no remote control included, so users will need either an Android phone or tablet running version 4.4 KitKat or higher along with iOS 8+. To connect your LED TV to Google Chromecast, follow these steps:

1. Connect your LED TV to Google Chromecast.

2. Make sure that the Google Chromecast is plugged into an outlet and connected to the same Wi-Fi network as your mobile device and/or laptop.

3. Open the Google Home app on your mobile phone or tablet, then tap "Devices" at the bottom of the screen.

4. Tap "Cast Screen / Audio from this device (Chromecast)" under "Available Devices."

Apple TV Box

Apple TV offers Siri voice search capabilities as well as access via AirPlay Mirroring from Mac computers running OS X Yosemite 10.10+. To connect your LED TV to Apple TV, follow these steps:

1. Plug one end of the HDMI cable into the HDMI port on the back of your Apple TV and plug the other end into one of your television's HDMI ports. If there is no available HDMI port, use component cables instead (you'll need three RCA connections). 

2. Plug in both ends of another Ethernet cable into each device if they're not already connected via Wi-Fi or Bluetooth; this will allow them to share internet access without using wireless signals which could slow down performance over time due to interference from other devices nearby such as microwaves or cordless phones that operate at similar frequencies.

Smart Blu-ray Players

There are several Smart Blu-ray Players that can help you convert your LED TV into a smart TV. However, not all Smart Blu-ray Players have identical features or capabilities, so make sure you read reviews before purchasing one to be sure it will work with your specific needs and requirements. To connect your LED TV to a Smart Blu-ray Player, follow these steps:

1. Connect the HDMI cable to your LED TV and the other end of the cable to the HDMI port on your Smart Blu-ray Player.

2. Plug in your power cord, turn on both devices, and enjoy!
