It sometimes seems like smart TVs cost too much. The only ones that are commonly advertised are the massive, super high-tech ones that cost a ton of money, and other than that, it feels like you’re stuck with outdated televisions.
There didn’t really seem like a good middle point for people like college students and young adults who still want the newer tech, but without the massive, expensive displays. Luckily, the Insignia NS provides a good fit just for that.
Their 24 inch display is good enough for a bedroom or smaller apartment living room, but it’s not going to break the bank like a 50 inch display will. This also makes it easier to move around.
If you’re having to move between dorms or apartments every so often, you don’t want to be trying to lug around a giant TV. This TV is portable, while still providing a great display for you and your friends.
What really puts this TV over the edge is the integration of smart technology. You can get plenty of smaller, flat screen TVs from years ago, but none quite like this. This TV integrates the use of Amazon’s Fire TV service, which grants you access to all your favorite streaming platforms and other commonly used services.
It requires you to have an account with those services, but it’s still much better than watching it on your phone. One of the best features of Fire TV is that it allows you to customize the channels that you see when you start it up.
These channels aren’t like traditional TV channels – they’re more akin to apps. There are major ones like Netflix and Hulu, but there are also more specialized ones like HBO and Showtime that you might need in order to see some of your favorite content.
You can use all kinds of other apps, as well. For example, you can use the YouTube app that comes preinstalled to watch your favorite free online content with your friends at the press of a button. You can also connect your account to services like Spotify or Pandora in order to listen to your favorite music and put on your playlists for things like parties, hangouts, or for when you’re just hanging out around the house. This TV is a great option for someone who doesn’t want to break the bank, but does want some great smart features they can enjoy, too.
