What is Google TV? - 12-27-2012, 07:52 PM,

Google TV is a family of HDTV consumer video devices that enable convergence between tradition live broadcast digital video, internet video, local media files, some DVR support, and a relatively full featured internet browsing experience. One way this convergence is manifested is as a unified search feature, that allows searching across live TV, internet video, the internet in general, and if supported DVR recordings. In addition all currently shipping Google TV devices allow a single remote, to control all these video sources. In addition Google TV can run specially developed applications. Currently applications are shipped with the devices, but in the future one will be able to install third party applications from the internet. Google TV devices sit either between the primary digital video source (cable, or satellite) and the television set, or are built into the television set itself.

Google TV may also refer to the software stack, maintained by Google, that powers these devices.

Google TV brings "the Web to the TV" in the form of the Adobe Flash-capable Google Chrome Web browser, which enables access to video-on-demand from content providers such as Netflix, YouTube, HBO and CNBC. Google TV users can also use their Android-powered or Apple iOS-powered smartphones as a remote control for the system. In October 2011 Google launched Google TV 2.0, which features the Android 3.1 OS ("Honeycomb") as well as access to Google Play, which is the renamed and rebranded Android Market.
