ABC, CBS, and NBC Not Allowing TV Shows To Appear On Google TV

Posted Oct 22, 2010

ABC, CBS, and NBC stated that they are not going to allow full length episodes of their shows on Google TV. However they will allow promotional clips when browsing with Google TV. Google TV lets you access the web browser and YouTube from your TV screen.

Logitech and Sony both started selling devices running Google TV this month. “Google TV enables access to all the Web content you already get today on your phone and PC, but it is ultimately the content owners’ choice to restrict their fans from accessing their content on the platform,” stated a Google spokeswoman.

Fox is not blocking Google TV from playing full episodes on their website, but a final decision has not been made yet. Hulu, a video streaming service owned by NBC, Disney, and News Corp. is blocking Google TV too.
