This week we’re hearing more on the strife between Google and television’s major networks, ABC, CBS and NBC and Google.
The Big 3 are blocking some of their most-watched and beloved shows from being watched on Google’s new Web-TV service, Google TV.
Google TV was launched in May, and allows us to search for and watch television programs through the Internet.
Here’s a great explanation of what Google TV is, and how it works.
Check out this video from Google released at it’s launch this past May:
Worries of pirating or just getting lost in the vast Internet universe isn’t stopping HBO, MTV or TBS from maximizing Google TV. But you won’t be able to watch episodes of NBC’s “The Office,” CBS’s “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation,” or ABC’s “Modern Family.”
The station executives have said that the service will change forever the existing broadcasting business. I’m not so sure that’s a bad thing, or that the Big 3 will be able to stop the inevitable.
