Toshiba and Vizio Rumored to Join in on Google TV

Posted Wed Dec 1, 2010 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

An official unveiling of Google TV products from both companies is expected at CES.

The folks over at Bloomberg say they've got some inside information on Google TV offerings from Vizio and Toshiba. According to their source, both companies will be unveiling Google TV devices at the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show.

If this information is correct, it could be huge for Google TV and the streaming video industry alike. Google TV has been running into quite a bit of trouble with streaming content thanks to blocks from the networks, but with enough large companies behind it things could change greatly.

As with Samsung, Vizio and Toshiba have not yet confirmed the information. "Google certainly is a key partner for us on the PC side and will likely be key for us on the TV side as well," says Toshiba's Jeff Barney, walking the line smoothly.

Nothing is yet set in stone from any of the aforementioned companies, but you can expect to hear more this January.
