Google TV has not exactly set the world on fire, but a time-tested treat that catapulted such technologies as DVD, VHS, and even Super 8 into millions of homes is now available on the sputtering service. You guessed right: porn. And not just any ol' porn, but a 24/7 outpouring of smut from one of the giants in the industry, …

Pr0n was just as available on Beta as VHS. What killed Beta was that they wouldn't DRM their file format and VHS would. So all the movie houses released their stuff to VHS but not Beta. The movies being available led to the opening of VHS rental chains which further fed the uptake of VHS players and recorders. Also VHS quickly moved to 4 and 6 hour formats, which were good for cash strapped consumers. Beta never extended beyond 2 hours to keep quality high. I'd give this latter about a 5% effect on the market, but the first was good for at least 70%.

[Shudder] American hardcore porn. Fake breasts, fake everything. What would be better is someone created the tech to make endless porn with realtime 3D rendering of the participants. For people who like American commercial porn the fakeness, the smoothness of the skin and the unrealism of the sex would be even better than the "real thing".
I suppose someone enjoys it or they wouldn't make it. However, if they enable the success of a video service, good for them.
