Smart TVs have been relatively slow to take off, at least in comparison with booming smartphone and tablet sales, but in just a few years they could become standard.

Gartner estimates that about 85 percent of all TVs produced in 2016 will be smart TVs. Worldwide production of smart TVs will grow from 69 million in 2012 to 198 million in 2016. As many as 108 million units will be produced in 2013.
