Lately, I can't help but wonder how the universe of people watching and using smart television sets, or devices that boost how "smart" ordinary sets can be (Roku, Chromecast, Apple TV, etc.), keeps growing. That's because the TV set or device makers are doing little before the public or press to promote themselves. Advertising time or space, even as this holiday season approaches, is absent from TV networks and print/online sources, and these companies are nowhere to be found at events like last week's CES Unveiled showcase in New York. The exception to this recent behavior is LeEco. It's the new player in this division of the convergence hemisphere, a company out to win on a combination of making content playable on any device and making the devices themselves.
