Smart TV for elderly users

I want to get a TV that my dad can watch YouTube on. He's in his 80s and will never own a smart phone, which I need for my Samsung. I know he'd enjoy the content that's available but I need the simplest possible user experience.

Is there a product like this?

If he already has a TV with an HDMI input I would suggest a Roku

Re: Smart TV for elderly users

My husband and I have a Roku TV in the bedroom and its easy to arrange the apps and remove shortcuts so only you have the apps you want on the home screen.


While I agree with @bobberuchi on the Roku suggestion I'm not sure it would be good if he may not be capable of changing the input to the Roku. At least with the roku built in, its an all in one center.
