When Every TV is a Smart TV

Once every TV becomes a smart TV will console makers stop packing in non gaming services to their consoles?

Right now the big three make a point of including services like Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, etc...to use as a selling point for their systems, but in the not too distant future all of those things and more will be included with every TV sold, thus making it redundant to include said services in a game console.

So what does this mean for future consoles? Does that mean they'll revert to focusing completely on games? Will consoles even still exist by the time every TV is a smart TV or will game developers abandon making consoles in favor of some sort of game channel accessed on your TV?
