    I think you still need to enter a payment option even though it its free. If you are worried about using any of your usual cards. I think I have heard that prepaid cards work.

    I get apps (free) for my tablet through Amazon appstore all the time and I don't have a payment method. GTV might be different though.

    I do seem to remember something about the gmail login though, but don't remember what it was.

    yep... thats cool i fig it out... you need to set up the one click pmnt option... so no the market is fully open... and it will not gate you from downloading apps.. that may or may not be compt with google tv.. more choices is always better.. i would rather find out my self if the app is not compliant then have Mr. Google make that choice for me... as long as its free..

    digging GTV 3.1 a lot now..

    Yup, the only problem I have with Amazon apps its that I like to theme apps. Amazon has some type of drm on their app store. But other than that Amazon app store once in a blue moon has a useful app from their free app of the day.

    Google doesn't block apps. The only filtration that Google implements for Google TV is managed by the individual developer. Whether or not the app will show up on the market depends on the Manifest.XML within the application's package. Apps won't show up in the Android Market for Google TV if a developer chooses to the mark resources required for their app run that isn't a part of the platform; like GPS, Touchscreen, or cellular radios. Otherwise, the most restriction that Google has placed on Google TV is not allowing NDK code to run on the platform. However, as I understand the developers are working at implementing this feature in the future.
