Google Fiber Launched Yesterday...any word about the Google Fiber TV?

I saw google fiber went live yesterday. While I've read several reviews/blogs about google fiber, none mention Google Fiber TV.

Any word on how it's being received? Do people like it?

Any TV UI is going to take weeks of use before anyone develops any realistic opinions of it. It will take time for each family member to play around with it long enough to see what they like, and what they don't, and they may get used to the things they don't within a few days of use.

I don't really agree with this. It took me all of 1 minute to know I hated TWC's TV UI. And it took my wife less than a day to come up with annoyances with SageTV's UI. There will certainly be things that take longer with some learning etc, but there is always a first impression from a UI that can win or lose a user.
