In countries following the DVB standards one can look at what the TV supports.
If I take Sweden for example the tuner is built into the TV as below example

and DVB-C (cable). I am sure I can find TV's with DVB-S for satelite.


These are retail devices and there are managed devices like Set Top Box (STB)
that have integrated tuners.

The fundamental shift is that HTML5 does not only run on a PC but also on TV's
and other retail devices. The spirit of webtv IG was to capture the
