Television has always been an essential part of the family and social life. There has been a development in the technologies and an evolution of the television technology and now the traditional TVs are replaced and taken over by the smart TVs and this revolutionary evolution has drastically affected the lives of almost everyone.

Television has not only been a source of entertainment but also a source and medium of information dissemination and a medium of spreading or dispersing news but with the change of time and technology and changing lifestyle, television has also changed its form and facilities it provided to masses.

On a technological and indeed technical side, we never saw traditional TV being app and streaming service supporter.

Offers new technologies you will love

The smart TVs are equipped with these technologies and this forms a cutting chord between the smart TV and the traditional TV. Other distinctions are the operating system used in the smart TVs that makes it different from the traditional TVs.

In addition, the facility to run apps forms a distinction between the two versions of the television. Voice search also forms a point of distinction apart from the space consumed physically by the two.

Many of them sport a touchscreen

Smartphones and touch screens are passé today.

Some smart TVs have a touchscreen which normal TVs lack. The traditional TV requires additional equipment to stream content whereas smart TVs can do it without any external equipment.

The functionality of traditional TV is very basic but smart TV works like a hybrid between a computer with internet connection and TV. The smart TVs often has a web browser but the traditional TV usually does not have an inbuilt web browser.

Helps you browse easily

It does not matter if you do not have access to your computer or just do not feel like getting up when watching TV.

A major feature that separates the smart TV from the traditional or not-so-smart TV is the internet connection. We find the smart TVs connected with internet (an Ethernet port and built-in Wi-Fi support) which was absent in the traditional TV.


Helps you explore the world better

All the smart TVs are made with one main intention in mind that is to give access to the user without any interruption with the content of their choice.

This goal and theme were missing in the traditional TV set up. They were not equipped with these technologies and advanced techniques.

Talking economically, traditional TV though cost less expensive were out of the reach of many because of limited quantity.

The new smart TVs though costing a lot should have been a luxury but is a need. With the changing time, we have seen television turn into a need and an inseparable part of households.

Taking a look at traditional TVs

If we see from the sociological perspective, the traditional TV did not come out as a medium of social change and did not influence masses but on the other hand, it only worked as a means to disperse information.

It was a platform to educate and make aware the masses about the happenings of the society and the world at large.

On the contrary, the smart TV, apart from providing entertainment, also provides a viewpoint. Yes, the media has become a perspective provider of opinions through televisions.

In addition, the smart TV acts a platform of learning, or perhaps smart learning. The features and added considerations work as a learning portal which was absent in the traditional TVs.

Well, at times smart TVs might sound cool and smart but it can lag behind in various aspects where traditional TV takes over them.

However, that will be from societal and family point of view. The smart TVs have taken a lead and have gone much more ahead. They now form an inseparable part of the household.


It is a matter of fact that we call a version of same thing more advanced and the other form of that very thing as traditional.

There is no denying the fact that television has changed its role not only in the form of technology but also in its role. The role of television from a societal perspective has changed a lot.
