Viacom is the latest big player to join in the banning of Google TV stopping Google streaming full episodes across their entire line including Comedy Central, MTV, VH1, and Nickeldeon. Viacom has become the fifth television programmer to withhold content from Google on and their new Google TV device.
However the move has been expected for a while especially with the legal discussions currently undergoing regards YouTube.
Viacom said it is evaluating how to turn Google’s TV platform into a business opportunity. It wouldn’t elaborate on the decision.
“We’re blocking access to our full episode content from Google TV’s Web browser,” the company said in a statement. “We continue to evaluate Google TV to identify opportunities where it may make sense to optimize our Web content for the platform.”
