    I don't know but in order of most likely to least likely in my opinion:

    1 TV
    2 Blu-ray player
    3 STB

    I hope LG offers TVs and a separate GTV box without Blu-ray but LG has made some great multipurpose Blu-ray players and were the first to include Netflix. We will know soon enough.

    It will be a box, possibly also built into tv's but definitely a box. My area's LG rep (I'm in electronics sales) was telling me about it and how it is nominated for a CES Innovation award coming up at the trade show.

    If it is I Revue replacement, so to say, it's a bad way to start out.

    Not quite ready for the ces and all.

    ( I know it is not a direct replacement.)

    LG has a separate box without Blu-ray – the “ST600” is a streaming player with a browser (supports only Flash version Flash 8) – So, there is a good possibility to see GTV box.

    The only LG streaming players I have owned and actually seen people use are all Blu-ray players, LG must have released about 10 Blu-ray players now with Netflix, YouTube and other internet streaming options. I don't have any information about what LG will do but I think the market for Google TV already have HDTVs and have Blu-ray players, a separate inexpensive box like the Revue but with better support, more memory and a faster processor would be terrific.

    Looks like Vizio (VAP430) set-top box is getting ready for pre-order - here.

    The box supports content offerings from Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, Amazon Instant Video, HBO GO, Wall Street Journal, Pandora, iHartRadio, Slacker Radio, M-GO video-on-demand and more.


    Cheers

    While the Vizio products that currently have the VIA Plus apps have Hulu Plus - GTV is a whole other ball of wax. For example the new LG GTV televisions don't have Hulu Plus, Vudu, and Cinema Now - while these same apps are available on other LG Smart TVs. This is due primarily to licensing restriction. While it's certainly possible Hulu Plus could finally make it's way to GTV - as of now it's still not available on the GTV platform.


    Look at this web page (see link below) from the Hulu web site about device support requests. ( From that page scroll down to the thread from 7 days ago - it's a long thread about Google TV support requests on Hulu):


    Hulu - Discussions - Device Support Request

    From the Hulu Google TV support request thread:

    "Hey All,Thanks for keeping this topic open and active. We'd love to be able to support GoogleTV. It's not as much as technical issue as it is a licensing rights/legal issue.

    Before we can support Google TV, we need to obtain a specific set of streaming rights for our content. In addition, we also need agreements in place with our content providers, hardware manufacturers, and Google itself.

    While there's no official news, if or when Google TV support is announced, you'll see it at ( Hulu - Plus ).
    Thanks again for participating in the discussion and your interest in Hulu Plus.

    Good finding, it looks that way for now (w/ Hulu+).

    Speaking of Vudu, you think Vizio/Walmart marketing relation would help?

    It can't hurt but the big issue as always will be licensing with the content providers. I don't understand why Google TV doesn't already have Hulu Plus and Vudu but the only possible reason I can think of is that the companies owning the rights to the programming haven't agreed to it. I have several boxes capable of Vudu and really like the service, particularly finding a few 99 cent movies each month, quality of HDX is far and away the best streaming I have seen.

    Apparently J&R has taken down the preorder, I sure couldn't find it from that link.
