Streaming video adopts new things and ideas
Streaming video is something very popular that is used today for a variety of things such as watching videos online with PC Tablets etc.  I think that it will be much more to come from this in the near future with the constant technology that coming out.

And replacement will take care of the rest
Given that Americans replace TVs an average of every 4 years according to Department of Commerce, and that pretty soon there won't be any non-smart TVs available, it'll probably go from all-but-ubiquitous to "ubiquitous except for a few ancient oddballs" by 2020.

There's a lot of redundancy
I am starting to find that all these smart devices are a little redundant. I don't need a smart Blu-ray player for my smart TV that is also attached to a Chromecast but you can't find Blu-ray players or TVs that aren't smart anymore. It makes the devices cost more and you don't even use their features.

Short Videos
<But its not clear if this preference is maintained for shorter form videos, such as short user-generated content>

I had a Vine app on my Roku once and it was terrible. I think short form content is all but made for mobile and the extra time it takes to get it up on your TV makes watching the content less enjoyable.

@afwriter yes, you are right, but I think BR players right now is almost dead... or near it...

Re: Short Videos
and quality is also an issue -- video optimized for mobile devices looks pretty awful on a large screen TV

Re: There's a lot of redundancy
Yes, to JohnBarnes' point, features tend to become essentially ubiquitous fairly quickly and Internet connectivity is fast becoming a pretty basic requirement for any device.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
I'm not so sure that I *want* a non-smart TV -- and apparently, I'm not part of the population that replaces a TV every 4 years. I don't look forward to software updates for my TV to keep malware at bay. And I'm perfectly happy connected an XBox or Apple TV to a dumb display to get a "smarter" TV -- instead of relying on the "app bloat" of a generic smart TV.

@mhhf1ve I'm sure down the road, smart TVs will be designed to deliver custom ads to people. Perhaps then the commercials you see will be different than your neighborh's even for the same show.

Re: And replacement will take care of the rest
Youtube TV already delivers semi-customized ads to each user's video stream, and I assume if Hulu had enough ad inventory, it would do the same. I don't see how "dumb displays" ever go away, actually. Some company will continue to sell them, and I don't understand why "everyone" would prefer a smart TV over a dumb one (yet). The display can be dumb, and you probably want to keep it that way so that you can upgrade the smart devices that are connected to it.
