I know people who do not even connect their smart tv to the internet - and just use external devices

OP here. Just to update this...

I took the advice here and ended up getting an Amazon Fire stick. I was going to get a Roku but was having trouble getting questions answered on their web site, but got them answered with the Amazon thing so that is the only reason I went with Amazon. I can see that Amazon uses it as an opportunity to sell you more stuff which is my only complaint. But so far it seems great. For those of you who like voice commands, Alexa is embedded in Fire, but we are not using it.

The Apps we use are: Netflix, Prime, Hulu, Pandora, and Amazon Photos (slide show of your photos stored in the cloud, on your TV).
