Google Hops into the TV Content Business

Fresh off the heels of the incredible growth of the Android mobile operating system, Google unveiled the new Google TV platform at last week’s Google I/O Conference in San Francisco. The new device is promising to merge the world of online content from portals like YouTube, Netflix and Hulu with what you already receive from cable or satellite services, and allows you to leverage the power of Google Search when looking for programming to watch.Built on Google’s successful Android mobile operating system for smartphones and tablet/netbook computers, Google TV leverages technology from AdobeIntel and Google’s Chrome browser to deliver engaging experiences to your living room. Sony has signed on with Google to make the first TVs with integrated Google TV technology, and Logitech will manufacture a set-top device to bring Google TV to displays without the technology built-in. Both devices will contain Intel Atom chips for processing power.More Information
