Greetings!
I am looking into getting a Smart TV (internet enabled). From what I can tell, there is going to be an issue streaming my media to it.

Here's what I've got now:
standard 42" tv with Apple TV, iMac that has all of our iTunes Media on it that is accessed and streamed to our ATV. This has been working great, but we want to add a smart tv to the mix (in a different room). I cannot seem to find if it is possible to stream from my computer (across the house) to a smart tv.  
I understand that apps are available for these tvs, but can't find anything about an iTunes app, or anything like that.
I don't want to buy a second Apple TV, that would completely defeat the purpose of getting a smart tv.
My iTunes stores all media on an external Hard Drive, and I believe I can take that HDD and plug it into the tv to watch movies, but I don't like the idea of unplugging and plugging all the time.
Is there a seamless way to stream to a smart (internet enabled) tv? We are not set on any particular brand, Just curious if this is possible. Thanks!
