Google TV is Real – Sony Internet TV Coming This Fall

Posted Thu May 20, 2010 at 01:00 PM PDT by Dick Ward

So now that it's finally official, let's talk about what it does.

The rumors were right, and Google TV is finally on the way. As far as the platform goes, there aren't a lot of surprises. It'll come in the form of fully featured televisions and set-top boxes. It will require the use of an Intel CE4100 processor, and of course, Sony is the first TV manufacturer to jump on the Google TV bandwagon.

The concept isn't anything that'll blow your mind. Google TV allows you to search for content on your TV, and then watch that content. The idea is that you'll be able to find what you want when you want to watch it.

One surprise partner of Google TV is Dish Network. When Google TV devices start rolling out this fall, Dish Network will be the first fully compatible with the new tech and ready to roll out set-top boxes. In fact, they've already been testing Google TV with some of their customers.

And as Google does so well, they've created a video to explain the concept in the simplest way possible. Check out the link below for more.
