How does one get internet on television?

To get Internet on your television, you need to purchase a TV tuner card and insert it into your computer. These cards are available in most computer hardware stores. This connects the Internet to your TV, but there is another procedure to transfer material from your computer to the TV. Nowadays, most laptops and flat televisions come with an HDMI connection which can be used to link the computer to the TV. Another option is to build a Home Theatre PC (HTPC) or go for a ready-made solution like an Internet TV. When it comes to Internet TV, there are two approaches. You can buy a separate device like Revue or Apple TV and connect it to your television or you can pick an LCD television from Sony, Samsung or LG that incorporates the components within the set. This is simpler and allows for greater flexibility.
