Sharp SmartCentral Brings Apps And More To Sharp HDTVs

Sharp is getting smarter. The company is moving into the smart TV space with SmarTCentral. The smart TV platform brings industry-standard apps and functions to the entire Sharp 2012 TV line.

The platform should be familiar. In all honest there isn’t much new here. Netflix, Vudu, YouTube, and all the other standard content apps are present. But at least Sharp is keeping up with the Jones.

The one somewhat novel function pairs live customer support with Aquos Advantage, Sharp’s product guarantee. Owners will be able to contact support directly from SmartCentral.

The smart TV platform comes on all the TVs Sharp is introducing at CES 2012 including the monster 80-inch.
