While Netflix, Crackle, and YouTube may be enough to provide your movie, sitcom, and cat fix, none of them offer much in the way of news reporting. Now there's no chance I could introduce a source that would please all of our readers, but I'm sure at some of you will be pleased to know that AOL has released HuffPost Live for Google TV.

If you know the name of the app you'd like to download... press one. If you're still using Google TV... press two. [Beep] Yes, that venerable service, Moviefone has been ported to Google TV. Why Google TV? Because it was there, and Moviefone has long since evolved beyond the phone line.
