Can you use a smart TV without an internet connection?

A smart TV may not yet be a common household gadget, but people are slowly adopting it given how feature-rich it is. As the name suggests, it can connect to the internet and do a lot of things usually associated with smartphones and laptops.

But, with the rise of every new technology comes a set of queries either from early adopters or those who are still on the fence. One such question we get asked is whether a smart TV can be used without an internet connection. Read on as we answer this query.

Can you use a Smart TV without internet?

The short and simple answer is yes. One can use a smart TV without an internet connection, but there is a catch. It is inherently smart not just because it has internal processing power and a sophisticated UI, but because it uses internet to expand its capabilities.

If you use a smart TV without internet, you will be losing out on crucial features that make a television “smart”. Even though you will have all the streaming apps, you won’t be able to enjoy any of them. You won’t be able to use it as a media player or play music.

Voice assistant, web browsing, YouTube and other features won’t work either. In short, it will drastically limit the utility and features of your TV. That said, if you have a cable connection, then you will be able to watch regular channels and TV programs like usual.

Using a smart TV without an internet connection will limit its features and true purpose. In short, your TV will lose its “smart” tag in all its essence and function.
