Google TV Setback: Apple Loving Viacom Right Now

Apple TV vs. Google TV the saga continues. Previously we brought you news about Sony launching their Google integrated Tvs with Hulu and Pandora but it looks like Viacom are not really helping Google TV. This could prove to be a thorn in their side as they are trying to make Google TV big.

Viacom seem to be blocking streaming episodes from the likes of Comedy Central, MTV and Nickelodeon and are instead showing “this content is not available on your device.” this is happening for Sony Internet TVs and Logitech Revue’s. According to engadget the user agent tweak still works but is that really good enough. Should this sort of thing just not happen?

It looks like Google has some work to do around their relationships with the likes of Viacom and going forward hopefully (fingers crossed) things can and will improve, but then again, will Viacom listen… perhaps not. Head over to engadget.com to read more about this.
