Can late model slim TVs be 'converted to SMART TVs?

Recommended Posts

AFAIK there are no conversion kits to add that function to actual TV but there are add on options using external box, like used for cable or sat system.  Not elegant having extra equipment and controls but can work.  As with a SMART TV you will also require internet access.  A better option might be Chromecast where you stream from your phone to small unit connected to TV HDMI port - I have no experience with this but might be worth a check.

Chromecast works OK, as does Amazon Firestick. Can you not HDMI from your laptop or phone direct into HDMI on the telly?

Depends on your location, as some services may not be available to you do to the geographical location.

 

I use a Roku unit in conjunction with an older LED TV. https://www.roku.com

If you want Thai channels, get a Thai TV box. You can buy them cheaply from the likes of AMORN.

 

There likely channels are with Thai content. But look here for more info;

As in the title.

Buy an Android box and plug it into the HDMI port. Install IPTV Smarters and many similar apps. Your TV will boot up with the box attached. Many Android boxes come with a single remote that controls both the old TV and the Android box attached.
