We should expect a "Nexus TV" device that would run Android, and be capable of streaming video from services like Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube, as well as play some games, of course. The Google-made Android set-top box isn't something new, it's something we've heard a bout for quite some time now. But, CES 2014 is right around the corner, so could 2014 be the time Google takes over the living room? Maybe.
