A product no one wanted gets a solution no one asked for courtesy of DISH Network, the champions of cheap HDTV service and cable packages in the US. DISH is a solid company but clearly number two among the satellite providers but don't think that's stopping them from trying their own Google TV experiment because if Avis taught us anything its that when you're second you have to try harder.
DISH Network just announced that DISH Network's Google TV solution is now available to customers for $179. By combining search capabilities and the variety of content on the web with DISH Network's onscreen programming data, DVR, and Video on Demand content, DISH Network delivers an entertainment experience with integration of Google TV.

DISH Network's Google TV solution, which requires a DVR integration service of $4 per month, includes the Logitech Revue with Google TV, a small set-top box available for a special price of $179 (MSRP $299) - an exclusive deal for DISH Network customers. The Google TV experience is compatible with DISH Network ViP series HD DVR satellite TV receivers including the ViP 622, ViP 722 and ViP 722k.
Customers can order by logging in to their DISH Network account or by calling 800-894-9131. Equipment will be shipped directly to the customer. After the Revue is connected, a helpful onscreen wizard walks the customer step-by-step through the simple set-up process.
DISH Network also makes its Google TV experience available to customers who purchase a Logitech Revue or Sony Internet TV powered by Google TV from retail outlets; however, the special $179 offer is only available when customers order directly from DISH Network.
