The multi-view displays two different channels at the same time, or as watching a movie on Blu-Ray and a TV program at the same time. In short, it is certainly an indispensable feature but may be helpful to look at the results of the football match of their favorite team while you see a film.
There is also a new music application that allows you to play music through the speakers of Smart TV, even when it is turned off, a “Channel Advisor” that shows information about the programs you watch most often and IoTV an app that turns your TV in a control center for the Smart Home, ensuring the support and the compatibility even with IoT devices from other manufacturers.
