I hope there will be no commercials on it - else I will not watch that either.

Either way it becomes a very sad case of "Google litis"!

They already have been running the Android phone ads until the airwaves are saturated for that. Now they want their own channel for nothing but "Google"! 'order now and we'll include this free Google T=shirt for no extra charge...."

"wake me up when it's over!" will prove to be the actual household word you end up hearing!

I am afraid you are right. I only watch TV in Europe where I have plenty of public channels without commercials. But in the US, I have not watched TV in years.

shouldn't google tv be more like the Yahoo! gadgets that are built into some tvs and Blu-Ray players, with at-a glance weather and news headlines?

"introducing the new Google weather channel!" "please watch as Google news + weather scroll by on your screen with the new Google info chip on your Google brand tv!"

"WiFi web tv brought to you by Google!" "run web searches on your new Google wrist watch in case your Google T-shirt is tied up at the dry cleaners!" Can't wash a search engine T-shirt in your washing machine due to getting wet!

By the time they get done everyone will probably be "Googled out"!

Hi there
"Resistance is Futile ..... You Will be absorbed " ......

Actually TV these days is becoming such a Low Brow medium totally riddled with useless commercials that I find myself watching it less and less -- and apart from Sports and the ocasional News program the only decent drama and series one gets were made around 20 - 30 years ago and appear on obscure Satellite channels.

Modern stuff to me seems just JUNK - Endless reality stuff showing things like how NOT to cook, how boring people behave when standing in line in Airports or so called "comedy" programs which are probably the best cure for insomnia since Humans first learned how to speak.

Studios have so cut down their budgets these days in pursuit of "the almighty dollar" that the whole idea of quality has long since gone out of the window.

Very rarely you can still find some gems of quality such as offered by PBS in the US on such stations as as WGBH in Boston or some BBC programs which can still tease the brain a little -- but on the whole I really wouldn't miss TV if it stopped broadcasting tommorrow.


Cheers
jimbo
