Sticking to their original shipping date plans of August 14th, today VIZIO’s much anticipated $99 Google TV set top box has started shipping to the first round of pre-order customers. If you were lucky enough to be in on the first round of pre-orders from VIZIO, you’ll be getting an email notification along with a shipment confirmation in the very near future.

If you didn’t get in on the initial pre-order extravaganza, you’ll have to wait a bit longer for Google’s second generation TV set top box. It seems VIZIO is still listing the Co-Star as temporarily sold out on their website.

Be sure to let us know when you get your shipment notification. Let the refreshing and frantic mail checking and rechecking begin!
