Will a smart TV work without Internet connection?
Yes, you can use it as a TV and you can use any apps that do not require the internet. My current TV is a smart TV that I can use to access numerous web sites to stream video and even has a basic web browser and email client. I never use any of the apps and it is not connected to the internet by wire or wireless.
Is it worth buying a smart TV?
Smart TVs are essentially regular TVs that have built-in capabilities for connecting to the Internet, which is why they’re also known as Internet-ready TVs. However, it’s undeniable that smart TVs are now obsolete, and at this time, the choice to buy a smart TV would not be a smart thing to do.
Do smart TVs need aerials?
No, you will not pick up any stations without an aerial. Since it is a smart TV it should have internet TV services built in. Such as Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, just to name some. So, you will not need an aerial, unless you want to watch live TV in your area.2 Aug 2017
