Unless you’ve got a Roku TV or one of the latest premium sets from Samsung or Sony, there’s a good chance you need to invest in a set-top box. Unlike the software built into many “smart” TVs, a set-top box is easy to use. The software and apps are all specifically designed to be operated from the sofa, the remote is typically dead simple, and the array of viewing choices are much broader than what you find built into your six-year-old 720p set.
