We cut the cable cord 5 or 6 years ago. Every football season I toy with the idea of subscribing to cable for the games but end up not doing it. As long as my NFL team stays on CBS I don't think I'll ever get cable again. Roku is on almost exclusively at our house. No commercials for something you already pay for, what a novel idea.
I'd be VERY disappointed if this was available on Wii HD only. I would get some other consumer hardware (like a Blu-ray with Netflix streaming) before I bought a Wii HD. It's not that I'm necessarily against Wii HD but I wouldn't reap the benefits since we don't have any HD TVs in our house. We just bought a couple of converters and put them on our existing TVs. What would be the point in getting an HD Wii other than for Netflix streaming.
I would hope if someone were looking into buying it, it would be someone without a vested interest in a particular operating system/hardware/etc. In the case of Microsoft, forget ever getting Netflix streaming on a Wii or PS3. Forget support for Mac or Linux. It would be straight up MS. Which from a business standpoint who could blame them? No I think the long term feasibility of streaming is best served in the hands of someone that doesn't have something to gain by promoting one avenue of delivery over another.

I wonder if this replaces the existing one in Columbus near the main post office or augments that one. It's only about 8 miles as the crow flies from the main post office to Grove City. My bet is on replacement.
