LOS ANGELES (AP) — News Corp.'s Fox has joined broadcasters ABC, CBS and NBC in blocking access to full episodes of shows when searched from Google TV's Web browser. That's according to a person at Fox familiar with the matter.

The move took effect Wednesday, about three weeks after other broadcasters blocked access. The person says the delay resulted from the fact that Google TV had just launched and wasn't seen as a high priority. The person wasn't authorized to speak publicly and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Tech blogs had reported on the development earlier.

The Sony television that comes with Google TV software can still access networks like any regular TV, just not the online versions.

Broadcasters want to block viewing over Internet-connected TVs because it is less profitable than regular TV.
