Cable companies are the last place I want to buy more services from. They are only adequate at handling the tv and internet service I currently buy and they charge an arm and leg for that. They still have not delivered the range of choice we where promised oh so many years ago. Here in Canada the service providers have become content providers as well so now they are trying to find some way to throttle my internet so as to control my consumption. Believe it or not I am not particularly upset with my cable company since they are just doing the same kind of business as usual like they have for the last 20 years.

If the home networks and asociated communications systems are properly implemented then there is a lot of scope to reduce the local elctronics content in each home appliance. Currently each of the home appliance - the fridge, the microwave, the TV, the washing machine - has its own embedded micro controller. With a centralised service this could be simplified.
