It's a challenge to create the excellent app for Smart TV that will work smoothly and efficiently on any TV set model, even the old ones
The joke is on vendors, who called connected TVs smart. If you decide to develop a TV app to conquer new platforms, you'd better know how vendors keep the price level low with the cost of poor performance. It becomes a nightmare for the frontend developer who got used to modern frameworks and PC web browsers performance, when he puts his hands on any two-three years old Smart TV.
Smart TV limitations
● You have to cope with old versions of browsers that will never update— almost all Smart TVs currently use Mozilla 5.0 (available for desktops since 2011).● Maximum 20 Mb memory. Just imagine it! Dahh...● Very slow processor optimized only for video playback, not for running any sort of application.● Support of 40% of HTML5 & CSS3 capabilities in avg (based on html5test.com and css3test.com tests).● Low performance — fails with "out of memory" error on 4 from 20 tests (based on web.basemark.com).● Massive fragmentation of different OS's & Frameworks, e.g. Samsung (Tizen, Orsay), LG (WebOS, NetCast), Opera TV, Android TV, etc. Please, mind that each platform has its own API.
