An answer in search of a question: TV over phone lines

I wonder if this is what we’ll get from local telco monopoly SBC if they win the Madison WiFi RFP:

If everything goes as planned, the telephone industry will be all about television in 2005. TV over your home phone line. TV on your cell phone. Few topics have been as popular this past year among phone companies and their technology partners.

I don’t think shoving conventional TV down SBC customer’s throats via DSL (will it ever be as fast as Japan or Korea’s service?) makes any sense…. As I said, an answer in search of a question. Clueless.
