If holosuites existed, I could see that wiping out "TV"
But how many people are going to have a holosuite in their homes?

I think Data meant something like broadcast television was gone.

Riker had a small holoprojection device in his quarters. Can't remember the episode. It was a passive display. Picard had a holoprojector built into his Ready-Room desktop. We've seen it project an image in at least one episode. Data also used a holoprojector in his briefing about the T'Kon empire.

So one can sit and watch holograms without being fully immersed in the holodeck or holosuite. These smaller projectors are probably more commonplace than a holodeck or holosuite.
