I think part of the big reason we're seeing the push towards curved TVs and other fake improvements (remember the commercials for the TVs that had yellow in them? Useless, since no one TRANSMITS yellow) is because TVs are plateauing on the technical side.  The cheap TVs are about to become as good as the high-end brand.  There's very little more that TVs can do without bringing in needless add-ons like 3D (which doesn't have enough content to support it), so-called smart technology (which can be cheaply compensated for with a set-top box), 4K (which suffers from bandwidth problems and the fact that everyone wants to have their own proprietary software, which is real bad for consumers).  They're all desperately trying to find the next quantum leap in television technology (like what colour was) before they lose their footing.  It's very scary for all the old companies because we're approaching this threshold where TV, cable, movies, web streaming, etc are converging and no one knows for sure how they can survive and thrive with the new paradigm.
