    Hi I just got the sony blueray box and I was wondering if there was a reason why many of the android aps are not compatible with google tv. ARe they blocked by sony or is It because of the software. I wanted the mp3 download and tune in radio and the ones I wont are not compatible . Also why are many user made videos on you tube not compatible with the box The box is basically a computer why cant it play these videos. Thanks TJ

    Use the Google Play store here for access to compatible apps, there are hundreds, probably thousands by this time. Yes, Google TV is basically a tablet computer without screen but instead with HDMI input and output running software unique to Google TV, designed specifically for the purpose at hand. I much prefer Google TV to a traditional computer for the intended purpose but I also have a traditional laptop connected for the rare time I need it. It may be that Google TV will be updated to play all videos accessible with YouTube at some point, but I have not seen that issue addressed by Google or Google TV developers.
