MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif — Google TV was never intended to replace subscriptions to cable or satellite TV, but to integrate Web video and Apps with television offerings, says Google's Saluhuddin Choudhary, project manager, in this interview with Beet.TV

Despite the intentions to embrace commercial television, several networks are pushing back, blocking access to the new device.

We visited the Googleplex last week for this interview.  We also produced a demo of the device which appears below, on this page.
