Canonical have publicly stated that they're trying to make inroads on tablets and other such embedded devices and you can see their intention with Unity and how it scales better for embedded devices (from TVs through to tablets) than a traditional WIMP environment would.

However I will never see many people picking this up as Android is already there. Also Ubuntu doesn't really have a good track record with reliability.

True and true, however I'd still be very tempted to give Ubuntu TV a trial whenever it gets released (been meaning to test drive the development releases).

It may not convert me from XBMC, and I may hate Ubuntu on the desktop, but I'm definitely interested in giving Ubuntu TV a fair trial.
