New Google TV Facing Delays Due to Poor Reviews

The new version of the platform will not be at CES as expected.

When it was first announced, Google TV sounded amazing. A few big companies like Sony, Intel and Google all pushing the streaming option could have been great, but things didn't go quite as well as expected.

In response to the lukewarm launch, Google has been working on a revamped version of the Google TV platform which was expected to debut at CES this year. As it turns out, the new software won't be ready and Google has asked tech companies to delay their introductions.

We've heard rumors of a Samsung Google TV for this year's Consumer Electronics Show, as well as Google TV sets from Vizio and Toshiba. That's a big chunk of the HDTV market that's forced to delay its plans on account of Google, and that can't make them happy at all.
