Beginning in 2009, DivX Certified HDTVs will be available from Samsung allowing for the playback. Samsung currently has deals with DivX for products ranging from mobile phones to DVD players.

DivX is a codec that allows for small file sizes along with good quality video using MPEG-4 ASP compression.

I love this now only to wait for Sony Bravia screens to join the rest :)

I was going to buy a new tv for my room this month, but now I'm going to wait for DIVX to be included. I've always liked Samsung & LG (my current tv make).
