I actually did dare to look it up, and discovered that the first public demonstration of the CDTV was on 2 June 1990, at CES. At the time, it had been under development for around 18 months, or since late 1988.

In fact, development was still going on even after that demonstration.
In a letter from Commodore posted to the CompuServe Amiga forum in August 1990, the CDTV was described as still being "currently in development." The letter went on to clarify that, in spite of speculation regarding the as-yet-unreleased platform, Commodore was as committed as ever to entertainment software as well as education.

My first Amiga, and probably the most beautiful.

The CD firmware was on 2 separate chips, and you needed to remove them if you wanted to use the 2.x ROM (so no more beautiful CD interface with those ROMs, but you could put them back in place when going back to 1.3), and doing so try not to break a "leg" of a chip...

LOL, I remember those CD-I infomercials that used to run all night. And it still failed!

A small correction - the Philips CD-i was released just a few months after the CDTV and was a complete failure, despite Philips pushing it like crazy.

I love my CD TV. My parents got it when I was pretty young, I think they bought it used. They want me to sell it on ebay, and think it is an accident that I keep forgetting my digital camera. Hee hee.
