It's probably actually desirable - since streaming media is not accessible (IE YouTube and the like), the TV tuner is a sort of way of having government controlled media delivered. True it isn't on demand, and you can't pick what you like when you like, but it's probably the next best thing and can be tightly controlled

Stories like this always just astonish me. Surely companies like this would realise by now, that by pulling this kind of stunt, they are essentially slashing their own wrists. Bullying their way into a legitimate discussion about their product by making questionable demands that screencaps be taken down just a) raises suspicion about the quality of their product, b) generates a lot of negative publicity and c) turns the very people that their product is targeted at against them! Striesand effect FTW
