For the vast majority of people, they plug in the TV and start watching. Most don't have a computer hooked up, only a recorder. Getting a computer or network connected isn't going to be easy for most folks
if they can get their laptop on their home wifi why cant they plug a computer into a monitor and do the same? cat5 is even simplier...click, click. ok done.
at some point the masses are going to have get off snooze mode.
