    I see that the TBS & TNT web sites are listed in the GTV Spotlight section - however the GTV Spotlight section now just links to the regular TBS and TNT web sites.

    When GTV first launched - TBS & TNT were original GTV partners - each with a specially designed GTV leanback web app (in the Spotlight section). Those leanback GTV web apps are now gone.

    I have a Logitech Revue (OS 3.1) and none of the video clips from TBS or TNT are working with my Logitech Revue now. I only get a black screen in place of the video.

    I notice in the TBS help section that Chrome is not even listed as a supported browser now.

    Very disappointing seeing as how TBS & TNT were original GTV partners at launch -:(

    From the TBS video help section:

    "Do I need a specific web browser (e.g. Internet Explorer, Netscape, Mozilla, etc.)?

    You can access this service using the following browsers:
    For Windows: Internet Explorer 6 or greater or Mozilla Firefox 2 or greater.
    For a Macintosh: Safari 3 or greater or Mozilla Firefox 2 or greater."

    Definitely bad news, hopefully this can be fixed somehow. It seems for each bit of good news for Google TV, there is some bad news. I do think things are getting better overall but the pace forward is sure slowed by negative developments like this.

    I tried contacting them about it, but never got a response.

    I noticed that Google has finally removed TNT and TBS from the GTV Spotlight section.

    I still have the old URLs from back when TNT & TBS had special leanback versions for GTV in the Spotlight section.

    Those leanback versions are still up - although it appears as though TNT & TBS have stopped updating those sites. I couldn't find any videos on the TBS leanback site - however the TNT leanback site still has quite a few video clips (from shows such as Dallas & others) so I'll post the links in case you're interested. (The leanback versions have clips only - no full episodes).
