About a year ago my TV broke, and doesn't really pick up a TV signal any more. I'm also bored of plugging in my laptop to watch films from iTunes or wherever, and it's probably about time I got Netflix (or something similar), so I can binge.
So, I need to buy a TV, and probably at least one other box in order to get a basic media centre going. There's rather a lot of choice though, so I'm looking for opinions:
- Do you have a smart TV, and if so is it actually worth having? (are the apps any good?)
- If you have a media centre/HTPC, what is it running?
- Is an Apple TV worth having in the UK?
At the moment I'm thinking of buying a 'dumb' TV, an Apple TV for the airplay/mirroring/iTunes/Netflix, and possibly a media centre running XMBC at some point.
