According to a recent study by In-Stat, embedded Wi-Fi chips could end up in about a billion consumer electronics devices by 2012. There are a few select television brands that are capable of connecting to the Internet via wireless (Wi-Fi), connection. In the near future, most TVs will use a form of Wi-Fi or Bluetooth technology, but will they need to be installed with internet security software?
Currently, TVs use ethernet or cable to connect to the Internet. According to a recent article in CNET, WiFi has been slow to televisions because the video streaming over Wi-Fi is too 'buggy.' Ethernet remains to be a reliable choice for connectivity and ease of use.
Currently, companies such as SONY, are already working on delivering HDTVs that they can stream content to directly to televisions. The only missing detail is the elimination of all those ugly wires.
