All Four Major Networks Now Block Google TV

Google has a bit of a battle ahead of itself if it wants to garner more support for its TV service. One major problem is that all four major networks now block Google TV in the US. Fox was on the fence but today it decided to block it, joining NBC, CBS, and ABC. Each network blocks Google TV by checking the Flash ID of how you are accessing one of the sites. If the Flash ID returns as one used by Google TV, then you will see a lovely box saying the content is not accessible on your device. Hulu and a few other cable channels also block Google TV from accessing the sites, so it seems viewing a legitimate TV episode on one of the Google TV devices just got that much harder.
