NBC have already blocked Google TV from their programming because online viewing through Internet-connected television is far less profitable than via regular television. Online episodes have fewer ads and there are no retransmission signal fees related to services.

The Google TV platform lets users access programming on

and it offers live television through a partnership with

"Google TV enables access to all the Web content you already get today on your phone and PC," a Google spokesperson said in statement in October, "but it is ultimately the content owner's choice to restrict users from accessing their content on the platform."
