First Smart TV in range, includes HbbTV support
Bang & Olufsen has put a Smart TV on sale, the first in its television range. The BeoVision 11 Smart TV looks similar to the BeoVision 10, except it has a selection of onboard apps that can connect to the Internet. It is also one of the first televisions to support hybrid broadband TV (HbbTV), a pan-European standard for personalized and interactive TV services.
