Fox is the latest US TV network to prevent Google TV airing its programmes in full

Fox is the latest US TV network to prevent Google TV airing its programmes in full, according to the BBC.

The US broadcaster joins rivals CBC, ABC and NBC in refusing to let full shows air on Google's new platform, where users can view the web and video on their home TVs.

Apparently the networks are concerned about falling advertising revenues, with online ads being less lucrative than TV commercials.

Google TV was launched at the end of October in the US and is available on some Sony TVs and through a Logitech set-top box.

Last month Google TV announced it had joined forces with HBO, Turner Broadcasting, Amazon and Netflix, all of whom have agreed to provide content for the web-based service.
