Windows 7: Android Powered Google TV is Here!

Android Powered Google TV is Here!

What is Google TV? That is the question. I guess the best way to sum it up is, “internet for your HDTV, done right.” There hasn’t been too many attempts at merging TV and the web, but the few that there have been, all were failures. i’m sure you remember Microsoft’s MSN TV, and Apple’s more recent Apple TV. Both were not that successful, and that’s an understatement. Today at Google I/O 2010, Google made the big announcement we were all waiting for, Google TV!

But a better description of Google TV is a new Android powered television platform that allows viewers to access Internet content on their televisions in addition to traditional broadcast, cable programming, and satellite television. It will come in three forms, an integrated HDTV set made by Sony, a special integrated Blu-Ray player also made by Sony, and a companion set-top box made by computer component maker, Logitech.

Google has also partnered up with Dish Network to bring an extra special level of programming, it will enable the viewer to access and record with their Dish Network DVR, all through the Google TV interface. It will all be powered by Intel, and their mobile ATOM processors. Intel has made special chipsets just for the occasion. So it’s basically it’s a computer your getting, en you purchase a Google TV set-top box or Blu-Ray player, or TV.

Google claims that their new Google TV platform will help viewers decide what to watch. In world of hundreds of channels, and thousands of shows, Google TV will bring order to all the chaos. But m0re simply, it brings the internet and web surfing to to your couch. Built on top of Google’s Chrome browser, viewers will have full access to the internet, video from YouTube, and even games. The whole experience is run through a Google quick search box, kind of like the one in your Android phone. You enter your search phrase, and you get TV results, web results, and internet video results, all in one, neat place.

Will have to check it out, got my streamer up, and running test. Have to see if it is worth the trouble; not really a fan of Google (nothing bad just not a fan).
