Many of us own a smart TV, but I’m curious to know how many of us actually have our smart TVs connected directly to the internet, especially if you use a device like an TV, Roku, Amazon Firestick or Google Chromecast?

Yes, I have my TV connected to the internet by Wifi. Even though, I have an Apple TV, I keep my Smart TV connected so it stays updated. Occasionally, I’ll watch Netflix or something using my TV.

All my smart TVs are connected to the internet. The one in the living room, I’d like it connected to the LAN. I just need to run a CAT6, through the wall...

MY Smart tv and TV are connected via LAN, but everything else connects via Wi-Fi.

All my "smart" devices are connected to the internet via CAT6 (Wi-Fi is strictly for mobile devices), and believe me I have a plethora of devices in every room. You can literally watch Netflix six ways to Sunday in this house brother ... :)

I purchased an Apple TV 4K before getting a cable supplied Androids box and later a smart TV. In retrospect the Apple TV was not a good purchase as the Cable Box and Smart TV made the Apple TV redundant for me.

Mine is, just to use the remote app on my phone to turn off the tv if I forgot to before going to bed or when I just slammed the front door shut while leaving my house.
