Hulu has played this game with set top box software like Boxee and Plex, but it was worked around by spoofing the browser's User Agent, and apparently such a workaround is already possible for Google TV users who know the proper tricks; I heard there's some site ("PlayOn.tv"?) that makes it simple.

I'd rather not think about how long this game of cat and mouse might last; it seems similar to "net neutrality" issues, but it's not quite the same. This is server's discriminating against clients, not pipes discriminating against content.
