Google's $35 wonder product, the Chromecast, has impressed many people in the last few days: even to the point of selling so many in the first 24 hours they had to cut their promotion for 3 months of free Netflix.



Now TV networks are up in arms over Google's Chromecast and its mirroring capabilities. Companies like Hulu aren't liking it so much, saying that they're working with Google to make a Hulu Plus app for Chromecast, which would have an "optimized" viewing experience. Hulu are a little ahead of the ageing TV business, who are still struggling to make the transition from the air waves to our Internet connections.




We'll see in the coming months and years, but Google have some incredible power and even bigger friends. The fight for your TV has only just begun.
