A First Look at Google TV: Some Sites Blocked, Some Optimized


The media world is abuzz with news today that some of the broadcasters are blocking Google TV (s GOOG) from accessing full episodes of TV shows on their websites.

Check out the video below for a first walk-through:

We are going to publish a more in-depth review of the Logitech Revue in the coming days, so make sure to check back regularly – and also check out NewTeeVee Live 2010, where Google TV Product Lead Rishi Chandra will talk about the challenges and opportunities of the Google TV platform.

Nice first impression Janko.
In the future, it would be great to do a review of shows being made by independent producers who are optimizing their content for Google TV.
