Amazon has come out with a television set that automatically connects to the internet, and also to all of the Amazon Prime movies without having to have a set-top box (like the Fire TV Box) to be able to use it. When this is used in conjunction with Alexa, which is voice activated, even the remote is pretty much unnecessary anymore. We have been getting closer to this for a while now, and I think that this is how the television of the future will work. Cable boxes and satellite boxes will become obsolete as long as a person is connected through Wi-Fi, and the television is programmed for automatic voice control. I will be surprised if Apple does not come up with something similar in the very near future.
