Title
(EN) DISPLAY APPARATUS CONNECTED TO PLURAL SOURCE DEVICES AND METHOD OF CONTROLLING THE SAME
Abstract
(EN)

A television controlled by a remote controller, the television including a network interface to receive metadata corresponding to a content to be displayed on a screen, the metadata includes a thumbnail image, title information, actor information, genre information and synopsis information corresponding to the content, and a controller configured to control a display to display a thumbnail image corresponding to the content based on the received metadata on the screen, control the display to display title information, actor information, genre information and synopsis information corresponding to the specific content based on the received metadata, control the display to display related content information relates to another content corresponding to the specific content based on the received metadata, and when the related content information is selected, control the display to display a thumbnail image corresponding to the another content, a first item to identify a first source providing the another content and the second item to identify a second source providing the another content, the second source is different from the first source.
