Take advantage of the always increasing social, audio, video, games, communications and other content/media that is available - most via APIs. Branch off and bring new, unique apps - including productivity solutions to the big screen.
You also have the opportunity to become a content/multimedia or service provider. TV, especially if it is interactive, is a marketers dream. If done right, this could be an opportunity to create a more effective way to deliver advertisements - in a new more relevant, appealing fashion. TV is the right platform for this because it's proven, and expected for this type of content.
