This week we'll take a look at several different approaches to the future of TV, with a review of the Simple.TV box, a quick preview of Ceton's Echo and the state of CableCARD support in Windows 8. The Boxee TV is also hitting the streets, so we'll take a look at that, as well as word of more sales domination by Samsung. We' also got another non-CFF related update from UltraViolet before we check out this week's TV picks.
