The announcement that Ikea will launch a TV range shows what is so wrong and right with the industry. It's a cliché to say that the TV is more than a gadget but also a piece of furniture, but Ikea has really proved it.
The TV will be available in a variety of screen sizes, with a base unit incorporating a receiver module and disk player. As several screen sizes are available, it is likely that the screen part is a dumb HDMI monitor. Reportedly, TCL will be manufacturing the electronics.
