"Linux on TVs is nothing new and shouldn't come as a surprise.
If you've got a DVR device, a Texas Instruments chip, an 'enhanced'
media device (WD, seagate, boxee etc..) you've already got a Linux
TV. What Ubuntu is doing here is associating their brand of Linux

Ubuntu as a brand) for consumer electronics vendors.
