Google is known for innovation, and Google TV has quickly become the launch pad of the Video on Demand concept.
Google TV is all about search, which Google does best.
It offers benefits that can actually make your television experience worthwhile, responsive, and intuitive.
If you are one who doesn’t only want the schedule of a specific program but also refer to the program schedule along with supporting clips, videos and web pages, then it should definitely be your pick.
Here some reasons of how Google TV can add a bit of “zing” to your daily life.
1. Search Friendly
Google is all about search and so is Google TV.
Google TV places itself between a STB and your TV.
Your TV provider works independently from the Google TV, and there are minimal chances of it interfering with your cable connection. When you sync Google TV with your HDTV, you can be rest assured that you will “own the steering wheel” completely.
You can also view current events like live shows or live concerts as they are streamed online via Google TV. You can even read a Wikipedia page of a movie as you watch it, to have a seamless movie experience.
Google TV literally works with any system or any service provider.
Google TV can be placed on top of a cable or satellite TV without any hassles.
The STB gets connected to your Google TV via HDMI and the Google TV box then hooks into your Television set.
Super, super easy.
This means as long as your TV set and STB have an HDMI port, it will work.
3. The App store
Google TV is expected to raise everyone’s expectations, as it will be upgraded to Honeycomb.
Developers are currently busy working on apps that will be specifically designed for Google TV.
Therefore, Google TV users will have access to the app store and will be able to explore the Android market for some real fun. The app store will be a winner for Google TV.
If you are an Andriod user, Google TV will certainly excite you and will widen your television viewing experience.
The Andriod remote app will also simplify the user experience and TV searching.
Innovation and creativity brings you ahead of competition.
With many television companies competing, it’s time for Google to take this giant leap.
Google TV is truly a product of innovation, and its benefits are manifold. Honeycomb’s arrival, fantastic browsing capabilities, the app store – they’ll all combine together for a truly user friendly and exciting TV experience.
