If you've not seen it, a wonderfully dark, bleak and depressing look at such a dystopia can be found in "15 Million merits", S01E02 of the British series Black Mirror.

Basically, the walls and ceilings of your living-space are covered with LCDs that show continual programming. Adverts will pause if you look away and wont resume until your gaze returns to one of the screens. For a fee, adverts can be skipped.

The show is, I think, really well done - even though so very bleak.
