Internet-Enabled TVs: These types TVs have been on the market for a while, but are coming into their own thanks to companies like Google and their latest product Google TV.

It also creates personalized viewing suggestions using its powerful algorithms. Of course, this TV also provides a crystal-clear picture to enjoy your Cable TV as well!
