A new survey finds that most people with smart TVs aren’t using the majority of the smart features. TV manufacturers like Samsung, LG, and Sony stick all kinds of internet-connected features into their mid- and high-end TVs, but the interfaces are generally confusing and not optimized for sitting on a couch 10 feet away from a screen, and this survey confirms that nobody really wants to browse Twitter on a TV. But the silver lining is that a high percentage of users–more than half–are using the video-related apps, like Netflix and Hulu Plus. That’s great! [via The Daily Mail]
