    google tv going down...

    did you pay 300$ for a 50$ piece of hardware?

    Google somehow thinks they could simply pirate tv and sell your tv viewing info...

    but looks like the networks have now said nuh uh...

    fox joins pretty much everyone else...

    I'll probably end up getting one to be honest. Give it time so more boxes are out and they'll drop in price, plus you're paying more for software than hardware anyways.

    As for networks blocking it I'm sure they're just looking to make a buck off the deal and Google will probably end up working a deal out with them. If not there's ways around it...I know people were getting around the hulu block.

    The streaming sites take a dim view of any software that lets you stream their content to your TV rather than just watching it 1st run. I'm sure google wil issue a patch to prevent the networks from seeing the box as anything other then just a browser.
