Boxee's Avner Ronen: Apps are Not Part of the Future of TV

Apps are beginning to proliferate the connected TV landscape, but they are not the future, says Avner Ronen, CEO and co-founder of Boxee in this interview with Ross Rubin,  Ross Rubin, Executive Director and Principal Analyst, Connected Intelligence, NPD Group.

Ronen noted that Boxee has 300 Apps on its platform, but Apps are not a natural part of the television viewing experience. He says that tablets and other mobile devices will complement television which will remain a simpler device.

Ronen and Rubin were participants in Beet.TV's "Root to CES" -- a two-hour Webcast originating in the Livestream studios in Manhattan.
