What's a Smart TV?
 
a tv which has the capability of browsing the internet built in.  they also have apps you can load (netflix, hulu ect).  think of it as a big azz tv/tablet.
 
Ooooo I just bought a new flat screen.  Are these any particular brands?  Mine is an LG.

Natural smart TVs let you go on the net
 
even the ones that allow you to get on the net and surf are not capable of viewing most  show sites content which require flash.  the browsers are crappy.

I was just thinking about this the other day. Got a billion channels but I only watch a handful. Only reason I feel like I need cable is for sports.

Once they figure out a sports package for the netflix, amazon instant videos of the world, I'll be permanently done with cable.

I already use firstrowsports for streaming sports but it's too unreliable and I want my ish in HD on the big screen TV.

yep.  he still loves it tho (there is one other that he uses http://www.vipbox.tv/ ) ...especially for stuff that doesn't normally come on cable anyway, like soccer.  he said he was going to look into some package for bball that nba.com offers.  i don't care about sports so i never followed up with him.  lol
 
i will ask him to see what he found out...

i watch the free hd channels (abc, nbc, cbs, fox ect) and shows from other networks over the interwebs...
 
i have found a few sites that stream msnbc, and cnn live.
 
the only issue would be sports...which i am not into anyway so meh...even still i found a site my bf loves that he can watch sports from all over the world (especially soccer since he is really into that)...the quality of pic is not that great on a big screen...but he doesn't care...lol
 
 
[/QUOTE] That would be more useful to hubster and I. It's a totally different dynamic with the children and daycare kids. I gotta find a way cause this cable bill is eating my pockets. I get tired of waiting until "Black Christmas" to write it off.
 
I tried going online with the TV but it won't allow me to download the plug-ins needed to watch TV/videos. I tried using the computer/laptop but these little ones have "touching-Itis"
[/QUOTE]
Have you tried a media center?
(http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Media-Center-Full-HD/dp/B004GK0GKO/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1357665822&sr=8-1&keywords=media+center)

We have an older one that works great. We just use the computer to download movies and tv shows then watch it on tv with the media center. They are easy to setup and play all current formats.

I've had it with these cable companies as well.

I threatened to leave Comcast and they basically told me they didn't care because I always pay my bill late.
