Reasons to go for a non-smart TV 

Privacy concerns

As smarter TVs get smarter, they track all of your online activity to give you relevant suggestions. They do this to improve your 'smart TV' experience.

This includes your watchlist, watch history, search terms and much more.

If you feel a TV keeping track of your likes and dislikes is an invasion of your privacy then a non-smart TV will suit you better.

Non-smart TVs stay out of your business and raise no such privacy concerns.

You can always turn it smart later on

Changed your mind and want a smart TV now instead.

Well you can easily convert you non- smart TV into a smart one.

How you ask?

There are 2 ways.

Just plug in an Amazon fire TV stick or change your set-top box to Airtel XStream.

Both methods give you more control over how and when to turn your TV smart.

Easy to use & no compatibility issues.

This one is an obvious point. Not having to worry about updating the Operating System, how to side load apps, how to switch from Netflix to normal Sony channel makes using non smart TV extremely easy.

Plus there are always compatibility issues with Smart TVs.

For example, our family Sony TV does not support Moto G mobiles for screen mirroring, but supports Samsung phones. (And 3 people in our house have Moto G phones.)

With non smart TVs you never have to worry about these issues. Also if you ever want screen mirroring function, you can just get any display dongle (like AnyCast, MiraScreen, etc.) 

Pocket Friendly

Last but not the least, non-smart TVs are lighter on the pocket, than the smart TVs. 

(Although this may not be always true).
