A “smart TV” isn’t actually all that smart if it’s not powered by either Roku, Fire TV, or Apple software. We all know it. Smart televisions from Samsung, Sony, LG, and others run popular apps and they’re fine if all you want to do is stream Netflix and Hulu. But no TV maker will ever support all the apps and games you want with their proprietary smart TV software. That means regardless of whether you buy a “smart TV” or just a regular TV, you’ll need to make it even smarter by adding a streaming media player like a Fire TV Stick, Roku device, or an Apple TV.
Anyone in the market for a new TV right now should know that there is one important exception to the rule. Some companies sell televisions that ditch the proprietary platforms and instead have Fire TV software or Roku software built right in. That’s pretty much the only time you’ll get away with not having to buy a separate streaming media player. And right now, several of the best options out there that have Fire TV software or Roku software preinstalled are on sale at their lowest prices of 2020. In fact, these prices are just as good as what we’re expecting from Prime Day TV deals, if and when Prime Day 2020 actually happens.
