Want dumber, not smarter
I would like a new TV. I want it to be HD and 3D and have a few HDMI sockets.
That is about it.
I don't need any tuner, any internet connection or anything labelled "smart"
(Is such a TV even on the market?)
We can currently access iPlayer (etc...) through the cable box, and also through the PS3 if we wanted. And of course we can also access such service on our pc, or the laptop, or our smartphones if we wanted to.
Adding access to such services on the TV itself is probably the worst place to put them. If standards change then it is easier to change a box then the entire TV. I get the feeling TV companies are trying to push "smart" TV's as adding the pas is very cheap and they feel they can use it to puff up the product and make better margins.
