TV-capable Device - (TV Capable Entertainment Devices, TV capable console, Digital TV Capable Device) - A TV-capable Device is an electronic device capable of delivering and displaying TV programming to a user. These include standard televisions, desktop computers, mobile phones with video display capability, laptop computers, netbook computers and video i-Pods.

These are necessary in part because there is a shift from the standard model of television to a multi-stream, multiplatform, and often internet-optimized model of TV viewing. Consumers have developed the desire for digitized entertainment that complements the static activity of television viewing, such as social networking, interactive advertising, streaming video, chatting and advanced forms of gaming.
