So, the news that Apple is planning to bring iTunes and AirPlay support to Samsung TVs broke today and it made a lot of fans of both companies happy. The reasons for why Apple would do this are, of course, for Apple to know, but we did speculate on them a bit in this article, for those interested.

But is the Apple TV pressured by other set-top boxes, like Android TV, Amazon Fire TV, and Chromecast dongles, or is the set-top box actually redundant in the age of smart TVs and gaming consoles that can run Netflix and YouTube?

In other words — do you have any type of set-top box at home?
