Yes, the TV does this and does it quite well.  The video is smooth and
looks good.  The problem is psychosomatic and the film that we are used to
seeing in 24 pictures per second now has 60, 72, or 120 individual pictures
per second.  This temporal difference turns what we are used to viewing as
a "movie" into what we are used to viewing as "video"/"home movies" or
"soaps".  It has a profound affect on CG effects and sets, too.
