Technology News: Media Convergence: Google to Big 3 TV Nets: Tear Down Your Walls


Google (Nasdaq: GOOG) is negotiating with the big-three television networks and Hulu to unblock access to their programming to users of its new Google TV service. News Corp.‘s (Nasdaq: NWS) Fox has not blocked programming but is considering the move.

There have been reports that CBS content can be viewed, noted ITIC principal Laura DiDio, even though the network is supposedly blocking its Web-based programming from Google TV viewers.

Hulu and Google are currently in discussions to bring Hulu Plus subscription service to Google TV enhanced environments.

ABC, NBC and CBS did not respond to the E-Commerce Times‘ requests for comment by press time, but Google indicated it is actively negotiating with all three.
