Simply put, can a widget only show say in the Chicago land area? Or Florida only?
Sorry for the delayed response. The yahoo widget gallery can only target the widget in a particular country/countries. The Widget acceptance criteria document allows the publishers to decide in which countries they want to show the widget and in which to hide. For city/state based targetting, you would probably need to do it yourself as part of the widget code, by either asking the user his location or using the TV's IP address to figure out the location using some location web service.
