Google have launched their video service onto the market. The majority of the content will be restricted so that it can only be played on a Google media player. The immediate reaction has been quiet, even a little negative. A round up of some of the comments:

"It took ’em a couple of days, but
Google Video now allows you to buy that
Charlie Rose you’ve been jonesing for, along with some CBS episodes, NBA games, and random crap that reminds you that Google isn’t just about the premium partners
for their new Google Video Store." Engadget

"Hey, is it my imagination, or is the first really bad product Google has launched?  … I know these are the first hours of the service, but I just don’t understand the move." Davenetics

"It has launched with about 360 full-length mostly B-grade movies and documentaries…The full screen viewing experience, or even the mormal screen size
viewing experience in the GVP is not that great…pretty sub-standard,
if you ask me. Overall, prepare to be underwhelmed…" PaidContent.org

To us? It looks like one of those viral video websites.
