Hulu and most of the big networks, usually those licensed for use exclusively with a PC, block Google TV. Using PlayOn and a PC, I can overcome that limitation but that isn't what makes Google TV valuable to me. PlayOn is limited to standard definition as far as I know and even though it is useful with the blocked standard definition sites, playback doesn't offer much in the way of trick play. Here are links to well over a hundred sites which includes a few dozen I use with Google TV. As a fan of public domain movies, I use Google TV often. Boxes such as Roku don't access nearly as many sites.
Just hit this link with Google TV and bookmark it, it should be possible to find sites with content of interest. The far lower right advances to the next page of links.http://www.symbaloo.com/mix/googletvcontent
Unfortunately it is clunky because some sites block Google TV using the default browser so switching to generic is often necessary while others are designed to work best with Google TV using the default browser. Lots of complaints about Google TV but if you know how to use it and don't require nice and pretty, it works great in my opinion. If an easy to use program guide is required like I had before dropping DirecTV, Google TV sure isn't the way to cut the cord. If all you want is access to a wide variety of programming, OTA with a good DVR such as TiVo and Google TV can certainly replace cable/satellite TV. It is also necessary to keep cache cleared and storage open and sometimes reset the box which again makes it less than optimal for many but I can deal with all of the awkwardness of using the box easily enough that it doesn't bother me.
