Many people leave the TV on all the time, at least while they are home.
If it's multicast TV I don't see the problem, it doesn't increase your backbone traffic linearly with the number of people doing it.
But this is of course a problem in a VOD environment, but on the other hand, people are probably less likely to just leave it on if it's actually programming they can have when they want. You don't need a TiVo when you have network based service that does the TiVo functionality for you.
Personally, I'd rather pay per hour I'm watching VOD, than paying nothing for channels filled with commercials where I have no control over when and what I could watch.
