Google TV, bringing the internet to your television

So, although it hasn’t started off with a bang, Google TV is available and as I tester I must say that I love it!

  • What is Google TV?

It is a box that intercepts your tv signal, internet, and combines the two before going to your television.  (Unless you purchase the Sony Tv with Google TV already integrated).

  • What do I need to have?

1. You will need an HD Ready TV (has HDMI inputs on back). — Unless you are purchasing the Sony TV with Google TV.

2. Purchase either the Logitech Revue OR the Sony BlueRay Player with Google TV.

  • Is it easy to set up?

Yes, with minimal cables, and easy step-by-step setup you can have it all set up in 15 minutes.

  • How are the internet capabilities?

Google TV comes with the Google Chrome browser pre-installed.  Unlike plugging a computer into your tv, where the resolutions don’t match up and everything is really small and hard to maneuver, this makes your television a perfect computer monitor.  You can be checking email and watching the news at the same time!

  • Are their other Apps installed?

The Google TV comes with Netflix, Pandora, and many other useful applications.  Coming in early 2011 the entire Android marketplace will be available and you will be able to download any of the Android applications you can currently download to any Android phone.

  • Can you search easily?

This is the best feature of Google TV, it integrates Google’s search technologies into your TV Guide and Internet.  So for example, if I search (by pressing the magnifying glass on keyboard) “lost”, it will show any upcoming tv shows as well as internet resources (webpages, YouTube videos, blogs, etc.) *see below.  And from the search you can press record and DVR your show, no more searching days in advance for that game/movie you want to record.
