Samsung and DivX have a deal in place to bring DivX support to Samsung televisions. Soon, you’ll be able to take a USB drive to your television and watch DivX movies all day. You could also hook up the TV via Ethernet to a DLNA device to watch DivX content.
Is anyone else wondering why? If you’re one of the folks who manages to obtain a lot of DivX content, odds are you have the ability to watch that video on your TV. Then again, if you’re that person, you might want to get a Samsung TV because it already supports your vids without the need for a computer.
The convergence of televisions and computers keeps going forward. Televisions have gone a long way from being just dumb little monitors with speakers to smart displays with some computing power.
