The launch of the Google TV couldn't exactly be considered the smoothest. And The New York Times is now reporting that Google is taking the criticism very seriously and has told partners like LG and Toshiba to delay the launch of devices using the software. Samsung, which was rumored to be preparing to integrate Google TV heavily, seems to be determined to launch its devices anyways.
The problems with the Google TV have been apparent from the start, as networks and Hulu have blocked devices running the software from accessing their online content. In addition, the Flash playback on the devices has been noticed to be sluggish. Just a few days ago we reported that Google was pushing a major update to try to address some of the issues with the software, but it now seems like they have decided to take the nuclear option of delaying major product launches or announcements that were set to occur at CES next month. Hopefully Google can iron out an agreement with the networks sooner rather than later. [New York Times]
