When it comes to Smart TV, manufacturers are basically charging money for nuthin.'
Or to put it in less dire terms, the Smart TV suites included in today's TVs offer little value. That's not to say I don't enjoy Netflix, Amazon Instant and HBO Go as much as the next broadband Internet subscriber, it's just that I can get the same great apps and content on devices as cheap as the $50 Roku LT. So why would I want to spend $100 extra or more on a TV that has these features?
