    I was checking out Google TV at Best Buy over the weekend and noticed they offer a free feed of CNBC. If you go to the CNBC website, they want $10/month to watch live CNBC on their website. Where is Google TV getting it's free feed for CNBC?

    On my home computer, I use the Chrome browser with the "TV" plug-in. On the TV plug-in, there is a free feed to CNBC through Justin-TV, but it's very unreliable. There are many days when the feed is down.

    I watch a lot of CNBC and wondering if I could get the same feed as Google TV on my computer. Anyone know where the feed is coming from?

    I REALLY don't think it's a LIVE feed although they try to make you think it is.... seriously, I was very disappointed with it.

    EDIT: I've got it on now and they are talking about the rally in the stock market while the internet portion of the app is showing a bunch of red so it is definitely not real time although they claim it is.

    WOW! That really sucks! How friggin misleading is that when they call it "CNBC Live". I think they're referring to the stock tickers on the right had side being real time. But that's really misleading. Can anyone else confirm the video feed isn't live? I can't fine the answer on Google. One person on Youtube claims it's a live feed while another says it's not.

    And can you get Bloomberg? Bloomberg provides a free live feed on their website. Unlike CNBC, they don't charge $10/month.

    I just came back from Best Buy and tested their Google TV for CNBC. It is NOT a live video feed from CNBC, it's just video clips of the past shows. Bummer.
