I think TV is just the beginning so that there is an installed base to develop more applications.
You don't really need a network of computers throughout your house, you just need a cheap video screen and a $150 device to monitor the central inputs. You could sit in a bubble bath and catch up on a TV show, and at the same time see if the ring at the front door is important or if you should call the police.
