This has become possible as Sony Corp has entered into an agreement with the top cable companies of U.S., thus making way for production of televisions which will directly receive digital signals and display better quality pictures.
A Reuters report says, “Sony Corp has signed an agreement with the top U.S. cable companies that leads the way for televisions that can receive digital signals without need for a television set-top box.”
