TVs, especially big ones are MUCH more expensive than PCs. A good TV should last for years, maybe more than a decade. Just like a PC, I would think that the "smart" in "smart TV" will change radically every six months. Would you really want to, say, replace an $4,000 85" TV every 2 years because you couldn't add enough RAM or a faster processor, or an entire "smart module"? Can a smart TV do anything that a "dumb" TV + HTPC or media player can't do a lot better? I'd much rather upgrade an HTPC or replace a media player every few years.
