Fox News: What are you looking for when/ if you purchase a Smart TV?

Millennial: In terms of Smart TVs, I’m just learning about them, I know they’re a thing, but I think it has taken a while for a lot of my friends to get them. Now, however, I’m seeing a lot of my friends get them in their apartments and homes, so it’s stoking the fire in terms of me wanting to get one. I don’t have cable, I’m one of those millennials trying to save a buck, so I’m looking for a TV that can stream and integrate with my other electronics, like my Alexa.

Baby Boomer: The manufacturer and distributor, more often than not, assume that the user knows how to use their TV and that is not always the case. So I want to make sure I can use the TV without having to read a manual, and that it is intuitive for someone who has not grown up with electronics.

Generation X-er: I’m looking for good picture and app compatibility. I typically watch a lot of on-demand app stuff, like Netflix and live sports, so I want to be able to do both of those with ease.
