Google TV Launch Date Sets Challenge to Apple TV

In the battle over the living room space, we finally know the launch date of the long awaited Google TV.

Google CEO Eric Schmidt announced during the IFA show in Berlin that their TV product (Google TV) will be launched in the US this fall and would go global next year.

Schmidt pointed out that Google will allow third-party developers to write their Android-based apps to run on the Google TV. Sources say that companies like Netflix and Amazon have already developed indigenous apps to run on Google TV. Apparently hardware manufacturers like Sony, Intel, and Logitech are already interested in producing devices that work with Google’s software.

With more and more users opting to watch their favorite TV shows and videos on the internet, Google TV will bring everything you love about the internet directly to your home entertainment systems with easy and anytime access.

Here’s how the system will work:

  • To see your favorite show just type in the name of it and Google TV will give you the search results.
  • Select your show in tune it to watch it.
  • You will also have an option of adding your shows to your list of favorites (kind of bookmarking) so that you don’t have to perform a search every time you want to see your serials.
  • Apart from television shows you can add channels, photo albums, websites, and music playlists and will have full access to the entire internet.

With Google TV many of you will probably be spending more time ‘watching what you want’ rather than ‘searching for what you want’! And the idiot box will probably shed its reputation of being just that.

Never one to shy away from a challenge, the Google TV launch comes at the same time as Apple launches the ‘$99 Apple TV’ at the end of September. The Apple TV doesn’t allow internet access which could be its downfall.

So, now there is not long to wait to see which TV the experts crown the best. My money’s on Google.

Google TV challenge to Apple TV is great because it lead to competition between Google and Apple.Good decision is that Google will allow developers of third party to write apps for run on Google TV is good decision but it Google knows the technological needs of people and always try to improve its services.Google TV is a blend of extraordinary features. With Google TV,you can enjoy games including sensor based games,music,android apps like Pandora,Netflix etc.
