Bang and Olufsen Announces First Smart TV

Bang and Olufsen announced its new flagship TV, the Beovision 11 with SmartTV features. Users can customize their SmartTV hub from a number of available apps.The first Smart TV for the upscale company, the TV includes access to not only the typical U.S. streaming services but services from all around the globe. (Services outside of the U.S. may be blocked due to licensing agreements.)

The Beovision TV also includes a compartment on the back of the TV for an Apple TV, creating seamless integration of Hulu Plus, Netflix, and all the other features of the Apple TV.

The HomeMedia feature will wirelessly access media on a connected USB or DLNA source on your home network. And, from the demo we saw, picture and sound quality is stunning.

Bang and Olufsen is one of the companies that employs YouTube's single tap, push-to-TV feature that is available on the YouTube Android app.
