Amazon and Netflix are partners as well, as is the New York Times. Not partnering with the venture, as of yet, are any of the four major broadcast networks.
"Since our announcement, we’ve been overwhelmed by interest from partners on how they can use the Google TV platform to personalize, monetize and distribute their content in new ways," the company's developer product manager for Google TV, Ambarish Kenghe, said in the blog post. "Most of these partner sites already work with Google TV, but many are choosing to further enhance
their premium web content for viewing on the television. Today, we’re excited to announce several of these content partners."
