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.
