New Google TV Announced

Google have announced Google TV, a new service that allows you to watch live TV channels as well as popular content from websites such as Youtube, but also surf the Internet too.

You will need a special set-top box to use the service, news of Sony being the first to bring out these boxes this Autumn.  Imagine being able to view popular content easily on your 32″ TV.

The system will use Google’s Android OS, which is currently used on mobile phones and hand held devices.   So the new set-top boxes will allow down-loadable content, possibly current Android apps.

A Google spokesperson recently reported saying: “Video should be consumed on the biggest, brightest, best screen in your house – the television. That’s not the PC, or mobile.”

More than likely, the new Google TV service will be a great success, until then, let’s wait and see.
