With Google TV, you can watch online content out of the confined
space of your computer’s monitor and instead play it on your TV ““ together with
standard TV content.
The goal of Google TV is to turn television and web into a
seamless experience, giving you access to online content and videos from the
comfort of your living room.
Google puts it this way: the traditional way to watch a
television show is to wait for it to air on a network, meaning you change your
schedule to match that of the show you want to watch. The internet breaks that
barrier, allowing you to watch shows whenever you feel like through outlets like
Netflix, Hulu, and YouTube.
Getting Google TV
Google is working with companies like Sony and LG to integrate
Google TV into televisions and BluRay players which will be available
exclusively through Best Buy. If you alredy have a TV or BluRay player, you can
instead purchase an external Google TV box that will connect to your TV via an
HDMI connection. The great news: the Google TV service will be offered completely
the cost of hardware).
Future plans have also been announced that Google TV will
integrate with video game consoles, like Netflix has done.
Searching and Browsing
Google TV will include a powerful search engine (of course) so
you can easily find the shows you’re looking for without browsing through lists
and guides. When you find a show you want to watch or subscribe to, you can
quickly add it to your home screen which makes it just like a traditional TV
channel. Google TV merges content from sources like Netflix, YouTube, sports
websites, and many other sources along with your traditional television content,
so everything is available in one central location.
A full version of Google’s
will also be included with Google TV, so you can browse the internet just like
you would on your computer. You’ll also have access to your photos and web
applications like Pandora.
Automatic Subtitles (with translations)
Using Google’s tremendous translation and voice transcription
resources, Google TV will be able to automatically generate subtitles for
content and even translate those subtitles to your native language (as long as
Google supports the language).
