Exactly, pixel density actually plays a minor role in moving images, usually making the smooth motion more difficult to achieve. Most TV sets are less than 100 dpi, many are well under closer to 50 and they work just fine at the standard viewing distances. Holding it close to your face does need a bit higher dpi.
