The Day In Online Video News And Views 6th January 2014

We've been predicting that set-top boxes may become a thing of the past and Roku is going to announce that they are open up their licensing to allow TV makers to embed Roku software into smart televisions this year. The company have confirmed partnerships with two of China's biggest television manufacturers, Hisense and TCL and plan to show off the new technology, called Roku TV, at CES this week.

Whether those sets will be 4K hasn't been confirmed but if that's what you're after, Polaroid are promising to release one in 2014 for around 1,000 of your U.S. Dollars. What a bargain. These and other stories in online videoland from the last few days from ReelSEO.
