Mossberg: TVs are still too complicated, and it’s not your fault - Recode

A timely TV tribulations checkpoint

"I don’t have buyer’s remorse … yet. The OLED thing is great, and I may even be able to dump the Roku because Amazon is built into the TV (I’ll keep the Apple TV because I’m invested in iTunes, Apple Photos and AirPlay).

But I kept thinking, while being barely helped at Best Buy, and then stumbling to explain the UI to my very smart wife, that it was no wonder that my old TV adviser, Steve Jobs, thought toward the end of his life in 2011 that the TV as a device was ripe for disruption.

He never got a chance to do it. But somebody should. Even a cartoon bird and a promising operating system still make LG’s $2,800 TV harder to use than it should be."
