Google TV

A Smart TV platform from Google and co-development partners Intel, Sony and Logitech that provides an Android-powered interactive television system for users. While Google TV is integrated into some newer televisions and Blu-ray players, consumers that don’t have Google TV built into their systems can purchase a separate set-top box that provides Google TV functionality.

Google TV brings “the Web to the TV” in the form of the Adobe Flash-capable Google Chrome Web browser, which enables access to video-on-demand from content providers such as Netflix, YouTube, HBO and CNBC. Google TV users can also use their Android-powered or Apple iOS-powered smartphones as a remote control for the system. In October 2011 Google launched Google TV 2.0, which features the Android 3.1 OS (“Honeycomb“) as well as access to Google Play, which is the renamed and rebranded Android Market.
