Such great looking TV’s are coming out. I am surprised it is taking so long for us to see 4k capable TVs, why would we want a 75” TV that can only do 1080p? That’s an argument for another day.
The major concern I would have in buying a new TV is the firmware. I bought a 46” Samsung in 2009 or so (if I remember correctly) and my firmware hasn’t been updated since. The apps are terrible, I only use it for Hulu because it’s not supported on my AppleTV.
There will be a convergence of smart living-room technologies. iOS is clearly positioned to be that game-changer, but don’t rule out Android. I don’t see how a company like Samsung can grow a organic ecosystem of internet enabled TV-apps, especially those that are compatible with our home computer networks. I hope Apple will lease their iOS to other hardware providers, but I highly doubt it. Until this resolves itself, I will not be buying a new TV and waiting to see how the TV firmware economy plays out.
