Dammit...Why are the networks so upset over Google TV airing their content online? Is it because they're spiraling downward and losing money left and right? Do they not realize someone can buy an HTPC with a TV tuner card and hook it up to their TVs to do it there?

It's probably because Google didn't pay the major networks any kickbacks for rebroadcast via the Internet...
