No you do not need a smart TV. In fact, you'd be better off not getting a smart TV because most of the "smart" functions will be replicated with the PS4 in any case.

1080p would probably be an advantage though to maximise the benefits graphics wise of the ps4

Maybe this one? £209 with code

If its a new tv, you may as well go smart. Not needed but why not? save having to boot up the ps4.
smart tv's introduce lag for gaming, not needed, any tv that adds extra processing induces high responce times.

You don't need a smart TV. But you do need a TV with HDMI ports.
