    Google TV Device for ESPN3?

    Does anyone watch ESPN3 on their TV through a Google TV internet device? If so, what device do you have and do you recommend it?

    I don't like hooking up my computer to the TV, it's a pain and doesn't work all that well, I was thinking about getting one of these devices. I had my eye on the Sony that combines with a Blu-Ray player (don't have a Blue-Ray player), but the ratings aren't great. On the other hand, a lot of the reasons the ratings are bad aren't pertinent to me. For the moment all I care about is Netflix and ESPN3.

    I think the price on that device just dropped by $100 down to $299 as well. Sounds like there is a big territory battle going on that isn't helping the device take off. Not sure if any of that matters to you or not.

    Thanks for the suggestion. I guess I could go for that, looks like the they cost about the same. I don't think I would play a video game on it, but you never know. Would I have to pay some sort of subscription to do ESPN3 and Netflix? I don't know what a gold membership means.

    Thanks!

    Eric

    I use a PS3 and a PlayOn server. No subsciption needed and you'd have your blu-ray player.

    That's not a bad option either
