SmartTVs

Some TVs have WiFi and a built-in browser, that are capable of showing the app. Smart TV doesn't always mean that a browser is present.

Samsung have a "Smart Hub" mini operating system that some of their TVs have. There is a browser in there, and the cheapest one that has it is the un24h4500afxza and it is $169.

LG have webOS on many of their TVs with a browser built in. Such TVs start at $198.

With a Smart TV as the choice for your radiator, you don't need any attachments to the HDMI port. Nothing to go missing (somehow), though you should keep the remote control safe somewhere. Also, as you enter the WiFi password, you'll be happy that it it cannot be seen after its entry (making it "write only").

Amazon FireTV Stick, Chromecasts, etc
