Tv with iPod/Phone Dock?! …

… yes I should be getting old, by having a "they do what, with what now? Is not technologies wonderful" moment when we grabbed a fairly standard Tv from argos, that had built in DVD player and iPhod dock.
I have no concept how typical these issues are, is this fairly normal in the UK now, or is it a new thing?
Anyway seeing as we have no cable or Television aerial these appears to work pretty nicely. I use the BBC iPlayer to download the programs (mainly Cbeebies) move them over to the now-doesn’t-make-telephone-calls iPhone, slot it in and ta-da instant Tv factor.
Works pretty properly. Sadly I have no thought if this would truly push out "live" iPlayer programs direct from the iPhone itself, as the mobile BBC iPlayer appropriately identifies our Wi-Fi network as being ultimately becoming a mobile connection (vodafone).
Modern day technology is fairly impressive, subsequent factor you know they’ll have Wi-Fi TV’s that directly play iPlayer stuff (and C4 too I guess )
