No, I don't expect to be able to stream local content with a newer TV, but I'm wondering if the apps for things like Netflix and Amazon are any good at this point. I currently have a Sony 40HX800, and the apps on that are pretty poor, but that TV is a couple years old at this point. I'm currently close to picking up a 55" passive 3D Smart TV. Have they gotten any better at making apps for the supposedly "Smart" TVs? Right now I primarily use my Xbox or my PS3 for Netflix, Hulu Plus, and Amazon VOD.
