OH effing PLEASE
That's an exception.
AND it's from 2002, when RJ45 for networking made more sense
That was the oldest reference I saw from a 5 second search. Never has already happened, and in the use case of providing video it even makes a tad bit of sense.
Actually this seems more like the oldest reference

1999, you can imagine it was RJ45.
But the point being is: We won't see it go that way. These fridges were mad-science internet boom attempts at marketing junk. The reality of things is that we won't see technology evolve where appliances can connect to the web and need RJ45. RJ45 isn't a functional connectivity method for the typical home, WIFI is.
Broadband is another topic all together.
