One can guess such services will become quite popular.

With appropriate security for the home/small business,
I'm guessing this will be their one-at-a-time website,
also their own 1:1 radio/video network studio/station.

Orange (France) gives mobile phones access to PC content: New service 
lets mobile phone users access photos, videos, music stored on their PCs

By Nancy Gohring, IDG News Service December 08, 2006 (snip) 


France Télécom, the parent company of mobile phone operator Orange, is 
offering a service that lets mobile phone users access videos, music and 
other content from their PCs

Called "Mon PC à distance," the service requires users to download a free 
software client onto their PCs. They can then use any mobile device with 
standard browsing and multimedia capabilities to view photos or videos 
and listen to music stored on their PCs. No special client software is 
needed on the mobile device. 

3 is charging customers £10 ($19) per month (with) another service that 
lets them watch TV on their mobile phones. Orange customers pay €10 ($13) 
per month for unlimited use of Mon PC à distance.

(Perhaps best also note an IDG news item from three weeks ago: 

Cheers all ..
