google tv

When Google TV had its big announcement back in May, the tech community was excited…and then, nothing else happened. Things have been quiet on Google’s end on more details about their DVR-esque device, and now a new report by the Wall Street Journal says that the company is having trouble finding partners for its service. Although Google has the hardware end locked up, with Toshiba, Sony, and Dish Network on board, the content providers like ABC and Fox aren’t so sure. While Google TV users can still watch those network’s shows through cable or satellite, the companies might actually hurt Google’s attempts at a “content from everywhere” experience by blocking the streaming services they currently have online. With Google TV set for a fall release, we’ll find out soon enough whether they’re great experiment will pay off.
