I'm honestly (and I'm willing to wager a lot of people are in the same boat I'm in), not in the market for a new HDTV. I have a decent 47" and if I wanted to upgrade it to a smart TV, it would make a whole lot more sense to me to spend $200 on a box, than a couple of $1000 for a smart TV.
I guess time will tell....still another 10 months for CES2014, which is almost inline with "in the coming months".....something we're all used to around here right?
