Smart TVs

Smart TVs

Smart TVs connect to your home internet connection, allowing you to browse a wide range of applications and online content without needing a phone or computer from the comfort of your sofa..

These applications (referred to simply as “Apps”) include catch up services such as BBC iPlayer and movie streaming options such as Netflix. You can also access social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook, YouTube for video sharing, plus a whole host of other lifestyle and news apps.

On many Smart TVs, including Finlux Smart models, there is a web browser so you can access your favourite websites on the big screen.

Finlux Smart TVs come with either built-in Wi-Fi or a supplied USB Wi-Fi dongle which allows you to connect your television to your home broadband wirelessly, so you don’t need to worry about a cable long from your router to your TV. However, if you prefer to connect via a wire, then all you need is an Ethernet cable.

DLNA (Digital Living Network Alliance) is another feature that is offered on Finlux Smart TVs and allows you to access your photos, music and movies from your PC across your home network from a compatible device. For example, you can access your digital photo library on your PC and view a slideshow of your holiday pictures on your TV!

Combi TVs

TV/DVD Combi models are televisions that have an integrated DVD player built into them and offer a single unit alternative to a separate TV and DVD player. With all the features you would expect of a stand-alone DVD player but with the added convenience of requiring no additional box or cables, these are a great space-saving option, turning your TV into a complete entertainment system and are especially popular as bedroom TVs.

Finlux Combi TVs feature an integrated multi-region DVD player meaning you can watch not only UK DVDs but discs from around the world.
