I didn't say *cable* TV.

Here's the context that I mentioned TV in: "for people permanently without
access to the Internet (who presumably also are without access to television
- otherwise why not beam Wikipedia through whatever network carries the
television signal?)"

That pretty much anyone with TV can get at least one-way Internet access was
precisely my point.  (Two-way Internet is a bit more expensive for people
who have to rely on satellite or long distance OTA for television, though.)
