The 401st Blow :: Thoughts On Media

Google Changes TV

Posted in Distribution, Software, Technology, Television, Uncategorized by Noah Harlan on May 20, 2010

Google just announced a fantastic product. Google TV.

We’ll see what it looks like when it goes live, but it appears to embody so much of what TV needs to do. It seems like someone out there was annoyed by the same things I highlighted in my post on Mark Cuban. The idea is that no longer will TV be hijacked by the tyranny of your local cable operator’s interface. You can now search for content non-linearly. But there’s more: it appears, from the screen shots, that it connects with Amazon & Hulu & Netflix. Search once, find what you’re looking for on your TV schedule or online. This product, in one fell swoops, takes a swipe at services like Speed Cine, AppleTV, Boxee and more.

I, for one, applaud them.

    I´ve read all press releases about Google TV but I still dont really get it! Is it just to bring internet, google search and youtube to the TV or can you really watch TV like with Internet TV software like this: Watch TV Online?
    Can anybody answer?
