it's easy to be cynical about this, but could it be that broadband TV is a little
ahead of its time, e.g. a money-losing proposition, and a reinvention that suffers
in comparison to what once was?  It invites comarison with "computerized books" 
which were supposed to do away with printing as of several years ago.
