Five things...I invented ages ago that are now new

Hifi-separate MP3 players that have an ethernet port on the back, and know how to connect to servers on your home network.
That the BBC licence fee is, in many ways, a slightly screwed-up but at least working model of a creative commons (in the style of Jamie King and Alan Toner). Though you have to get Larry Lessig in to tell you that, because I didn't count.
Interactive drama needs to pay the bills - lets do mainstream first, and then worry about those lovely scifi ideas *we* get our rocks off on later.
Asynchronous chat around content is really useful, and utterly public service.
With the application of moore's law, your average tivo/dvd-ram system will mean that people can store around 2000 hours of video at home for watching on-demand - that's not broadcasting, that's software licensing.
