Honestly if I'm paying for a TV service I should be able to plug in the device anywhere I have network. Look at what cell carriers have done with wifi calling. Have Internet? Have SMS, voice etc. 

If I'm consuming with a STB or a phone or VLC to ASCII plugin as long as I pass the authentication I should have access. 

Segmenting is just asking for trouble.
