The sets themselves might be relatively inexpensive but the support costs 
would be a lot more than  a set top box.

You've seen how they handle those, right?  Damn near just tossed into the 
back of the truck.  That and the square footage required for TVs would be 
quite a lot more.  Both for delivery and then for support, turn-around and 
eventual shipping back/forth for service.

I don't see a cable operator likely wanting to take on all those added 
costs, at least not compared to handling set top boxes.
