According to the Telegraph website here in the UK, Google TV is heading our way.
This is what they posted:
The “Google TV” innovation will also mean that viewers can watch material from catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer and ITV Player on their main TV screen.
Accessed through a special set-top box, the service is due to launch in the UK within six months, following its launch earlier in the US.
Google’s executive chairman Eric Schmidt will outline the plans when he gives this year’s MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival.
According to the company, Google TV will allow people to search all of the content on the TV and the internet by using a single click.
The service will also allow viewers to switch between the TV and the internet on their main screen without having to adjust any cables.
Smartphones and iPhones can be used instead of a remote control top change channels and people will even be able to use their own voice to conduct searches.
The service also has a special version of YouTube in high definition.
Personally I am yet to be convinced by Google TV. It’s been available in the US for about a year now and frankly it’s was nothing special, so I hope they do something better than just a UK version!
