I’m guessing a lot of you are as excited about the prospect of Google jumping into the television market as I am. But, if you are also like me, you are a bit confused about what Google TV actually will be. Well Google just released a nice short video that gives you a good understanding of what your Google TV experience will be.
Simple, right? I pretty much do everything Google TV highlights already, but by having my TV on and my laptop in my lap (such as checking sports standings while watching a game, finding out what other movies I know a particular actor from, seeing who got voted off the week before on a reality show). Being able to do this all in one screen and record your favorite shows is awesome, and is a big upgrade over the general DVRs out there now. And of course combining television shows with online shows is cool – it’s something most people are doing now already and certainly could help spur even more made-for-web programs.
I am still interested to know specifics on when it will launch, what the cost will be (I am guessing fairly low!) and where it will be available (I am guessing not in Doha!). What are your thoughts on Google TV?
