Logitech Revue With Google TV Production Halted Till Software Upgrade

Google TV has not had it easy over the past few weeks. Recently, Viacom blocked support to full episode streaming which meant users can no longer watch episodes from popular channels like MTV, Nickelodeon and Comedy Central. As Google stumbles upon one roadblock after another in the internet-connected TV segment, it looks like its partners have decided to drop support till the tide turn back in their favor.

According to reports, Logitech has instructed its manufacturer Gigabyte to halt production of its Revue set-top boxes until January 2011. The reason, it is told, is because of the unimpressive reception that Google TV has received so far in the market. The production can resume once again after January but that is depending on how Google sorts out its issues with content partners. Also, Logitech is learned to be awaiting a massive upgrade of the Google TV software that could make it a lot more appealing.

You can still buy a Revue from the stores as of now. There is still plenty of inventory that retailers can sell to you.
