    So this is interesting. Also at CES this year Samsung was showing off TV apps for services like Verizon's FiOS TV service and DirectTV's Service which eliminated the set top box as long as you had a good IP connection and of course the subscription to the service.

    Perhaps in the near future almost all video services will simply be an app. No need for other boxes stacked under the TV for any screen in your house.
