Smart TV functionality brings YouTube, BBC iPlayer, Flickr (and Facebook through Toshiba Places) and other applications for on-demand content. It connects to the Internet wirelessly via an additional dongle, and sports USB connectivity for playing audio or video content from USB key.

For connecting other home entertainment devices, the TL series packs four HDMI ports.
