Google TV - The enfrustratening continues

Okay not happy.

I've just updated the Logitech Revue #googletv  device to 3.2 (this by the way is going to be the last update the Revue gets, Logitech has stated explicitly that they won't be updating the Revue to ICS).

One of the features that I was looking forward to was an update to the Youtube App which would allow me to actually watch the Google Movies that I wanted to rent (Google Movies being the only option I have right now unless I want to go the Apple route).

And lo and behold, there it is. I can actually see that I've rented Blues Brothers (currently available for 99cents AUS). Excellent!

Except I still can't watch the damn thing.

When I go to watch it in the youtube app it tells me that it's not playable in the Youtube app and recommends that I play it through Chrome.


Except Chrome is telling me that it doesn't have the correct version of flash.

Dear +Google TV this is not a good thing. I want to use your services, and I really do like what you're doing with GTV, but the simple fact is that while people can't use your apps to view content they purchase through your services, you're not going to be able to compete with AppleTV.
