'No TV Smartness for us' say scruffyvision Brits
Us Brits might be more of a nation of Luddites than we like to give ourselves credit for, if a new survey is to be believed. Conducted by YouGov, it says that more than half of us definitely don’t want a ‘Smart TV’ – namely one than connects to the web and allows us to view content via the likes of BBC’s iPlayer, YouTube, Blinkbox, Lovefilm etc, etc, etc, amen.
In fact, seven per cent of those who were held down and quizzed by YouGov didn’t even know what a Smart TV was! Ha! Idiots! Apparently, a quarter of us are undecided about the snazzy super-tellies, while one in ten of us already have one, with four per cent saying they’re planning to take ‘the plunge’ over the next year.
The reports also shows that with 10% of ownership, we’re lagging behind the likes of France (18%), Denmark (15%), Sweden (13%), Finland (12%) and Germany (11%) when it comes to embracing the new and Smartening ourselves up.
Let’s see what you lot, a naturally savvier bunch, think about it all... share your thinkings with us in the box below.
