Google TV getting swept under the rug?

John Moe Oct 28, 2010

My goodness, can we already be seeing Google TV die? First the three major broadcast networks blocked their content from the device/service/thingy, calling its viability into question. Now comes word that Google TV has been assigned to the department that runs YouTube over at Google, this according to the San Francisco Chronicle.

This is important because it effects how you’re going to veg out and watch TV in the future. If Google TV is the wave of the future, why are they assigning it to their web video department? Or will YouTube be their brand and a gateway to watching TV shows, when/if they get this network mess sorted out
