Google Officially Announces Google TV [Video]

Google has officially announced Google TV, a new experience for television that combines TV with the web.

Google TV has Chrome built in, allowing you to access all of your websites and move between television and the Internet. It's built on Android and developers are already being challenged to design applications for the platform. The SDK and web APIs for TV will be available soon.

Google TV uses search to give you an easy and fast way to navigate to television channels, websites, apps, shows and movies. For example, already know the channel or program you want to watch? Just type in the name and you’re there. Want to check out that funny YouTube video on your 48” flat screen? It’s just a quick search away. If you know what you want to watch, but you’re not sure where to find it, just type in what you’re looking for and Google TV will help you find it on the web or on one of your many TV channels. If you’d rather browse than search, you can use your standard program guide, your DVR or the Google TV home screen, which provides quick access to all of your favorite entertainment so you’re always within reach of the content you love most.

The company is working with Sony and Logitech to put the service inside of televisions, blu-ray players, and companion boxes. These devices will go on sale this fall, and will be available at Best Buy stores nationwide.

...AppleTV...yeah rt, that if u live in the Mapple store, Google TV is more like Web Tv from MS, as a matter of fact is the same but using a better interface, it\'s an updated version, something like going from Win98 to XP.

Apple TV is essentially this but without the full web browser, but this is a brilliant idea. Although I do think that updating your status is a bit excessive.

This is what Apple TV could have been. Maybe the competition makes Apple think outside their tiny box.
