CES 2013 has ushered in a wealth of smart-TV-related announcements, most notably from The Smart TV Alliance and Roku. The Alliance – founded by LG, TP Vision and Toshiba, in the hopes of developing a single, cross-manufacturer IETV application framework – has brought Panasonic and Technisat into its ranks. Roku – makers of the Roku OTT set-top box – has announced that Coby Electronics, Hisense, TCL and Westinghouse Digital have joined its Roku Ready program.
