We told you yesterday that Fox.com was now blocking Google TV devices from accessing full streaming episodes. Well, I decided to see if the ol’ user agent trick that once worked on Hulu.com would work here, and it appears that it does.
So, for the time being to resume watching Fox.com content on your Google TV you must bring up the browser menu, then go to “more”, and then “settings”. From there go to “advanced” (as seen above) and then “mode”, and finally change the user agent mode from “default” to “generic”.
There you have it, you may now go back to watching all of your favorite Fox shows on Google TV… that is until Fox plugs this workaround like Hulu did. Stay tuned.
