Smart TVs Just Got Even Smarter

Even your mom can get behind this advancement.

It's refreshing when technological advances address the mundane, everyday struggles of life. Like when your mom calls to ask which of her five remotes she needs to watch "Downton Abbey."

Thanks to a new generation of smart TVs, 2016 may just be the year we say goodbye to such struggles, as well as to the plethora of remote controls cluttering our coffee tables.

Samsung announced the new TVs at the annual Consumer Electronics Show on Monday, saying they will seamlessly integrate linear content (like live television), OTT content (like Netflix) as well as other connected devices, including video game consoles and Blu-ray players.

The refreshed interface, Samsung promises, will allow consumers "to access what they really want to watch more easily and quickly." 

The best part? The new smart remote doesn't require any setup at all. It will automatically detect your cable box, game console, or anything else you plug into your TV.

Even your mom can handle that.
