Search for television?

In trying to find topics and debates on the whole desktop search topic I ran across something interesting.  What about a contextual search engine for television?  Binkx.tv has launched and they say that's what they do.  The best I see so far is they can bring up related video clips that you can play/listen to on your PC that have already aired.  TiVo is very cool in itself by allowing searches of the guide data and show summaries to find things to record...is this the future?  I dunno but it's a neat idea.

“Rich media, like video, is the next step in the evolution of search from Web, to desktop, to living room. Using smart, contextual search, blinkx links users to relevant clips anywhere in the video stream, delivering video content straight from the television to the consumer’s PC.”
