Netflix is not free on a smart TV although you can get a free 30 day trial of Netflix on your smart TV.

The downsides of a Smart TV are.

They can be harder to program and use.

The software can become outdated in the Smart TV.

They can pose security risks.

A smart TV can stream video on demand, play music, and do a lot more.

This may include accessing your favorite apps, browsing social media, or getting sports updates.

In most cases, a regular TV doesn't have any processing power, which means it can't connect to the internet.

Smart TV's do tend to get outdated when new apps etc come out that may not work with the Smart TV.

However even when the Smart TV gets outdated it can still work to watch YouTube and the other channels on the Smart TV.

You can also add a Roku or streaming device to your Smart TV if the built in streaming does not work properly.

Smart TVs last around 3 to 5 years although some may last 10 years.

Some people replace their smart TV before 5 years because they want a new one.

A flat screen TV lasts around 5 to 10 years before it goes bad.

The more you use the flat screen TV the faster the TV will give out.

You should expect around 5 to 10 years out of a good flat screen LED TV although some cheaper models may only last 1 to 3 years.

A TV needs to be placed or mounted at least 2 to 6 inches from the wall for ventilation.

Whether you decide to set the TV on a console or mount it on the wall, the best height for a TV is actually the same eye level for a person sitting on the sofa.

In general, that means the center of the TV should be about 42” above the floor, regardless of the size of the TV.

Leaving the TV on all night does not use a lot of electricity.

On average it cost around 20 cents to 30 cents per night to leave a TV on all night.

I leave my TV on all night and my bill only increases by $1.00 to $2.00 per month.

A TV does not use a whole lot of electricity.

TV's use on average of 40 watts to 180 watts depending on the size of the TV.

Smaller TV's use around 40 to 50 watts while larger TVs can use as much as 80 watts, 100 watts and even 180 watts.

Modern LED TVs use around 35 to 40 watts although the larger LED TVs can  use as much as 100 to 150 watts.

You should be able to find the exact wattage of your TV on the back of the TV near where the serial numbers and model numbers are located.

The amount of watts that a TV uses depends on the size of the TV.

Smaller 24 inch TV's may use around 35 to 40 Watts while a larger TV such as a 42 " to 52 " TV could use as much as 100 watts to 150 watts.

Old CRT TVs were pretty power hungry and even for the smallest CRT TV it could use as much as 100 watts while a larger CRT TV could use as much as 200 to 250 watts of electricity when powered on.

Modern TVs use, on average, 58.6 watts when in On mode and 1.3 watts in standby mode.

The power consumption of modern TVs ranges from 10W to 117W (0.5W to 3W on standby).

On average, TVs consume 106.9 kWh of electricity per year, costing $16.04 annually to run in the US.

- 32” LED: 30 – 55 watts, but generally around 40 watts, - 32” OLED: around 55 - 60 watts, - 32” LCD: 50 – 85 watts, but on average around 65-70 watts.

For example, old 32” CRT TVs required up to 150-200 watts (even more if the screen brightness is increased) with an average consumption of around 120 watts.

Most LED TV's has rated power between 60 watt to 150 watt.

Generally speaking larger the screen size higher is the rated power.

A 100 watt TV running for 12 hours everyday will consume 1200 watt hours = 1.2 kWh (units) of electricity in a day and 36 kWh of electricity in the entire month.

Subscription-based streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime Video and offer their program listings within their respective platforms. These services not only provide access to a wide range of on-demand content but also offer personalized recommendations based on your viewing habits. By exploring their program libraries and categories, you can easily find the latest shows and never miss out on any trending programs.
