The New York Times is reporting that Google, Intel and Sony have all teamed up to create a new set-top box for in-home streaming, called Google TV. The new project, which has been underway for several months already, is said to let consumers browse and stream the Internet right to their televisions.

The trio has also picked up Logitech to design the remote control for the new set-top box, including a tiny keyboard for navigation. The set-top box is said to be Android powered, Google’s popular smartphone operating system, and require an Internet connection.

Although Google, Intel and Logitech all decline to comment on the project, a Sony spokesperson said they were not familiar with the project. However, Intel has posted a job openings for senior engineers with Android development experience to bring their technology, “from PC screen to mobile screen and TV screen.” Logitech has also posted several job openings for Android based developers to bring “audio and video products based on the Android platform.”

Google and Sony have their work cut out for them, entering a market that already has heavy competition, including Cisco, Motorola, Microsoft, Apple, TiVo, Roku and Boxee. Not to mention Yahoo, who demonstrated Widgets on the new lineup of LG HDTV’s.

Intel will be providing the Atom processors for Google TV, while Google will be providing the open-source Android platform, opening it up to developers in the coming months to design and develop applications.

A person who knows about the project said “Google wants to be everywhere the Internet is so they can put ads there.” Google started “Google TV Ads” three years back, where thousands of advertisers signed up for the program.

Bloomberg is reporting that Sony will introduce their Android-based 'Google TV' at Google I/O. Remember, 'Google TVs' are TV sets that use Intel Atom chips and run an optimized Android OS. Having Android on a TV could very well be the solution to all our crappy TV UI's. It also could not.

What's kind of interesting, however, is that Sony is using a new version of Android called 'Dragonpoint' to power these TVs. We've never heard of Dragonpoint before, and though it sounds insanely cool, it's probably just code for Android optimized for TV usage. Or it could be awesome.

Basically, there's much to find out about these new Google TV sets and Google I/O is the perfect stage for it to be introduced. Considering the likes of Sony, Intel, and Google are involved, it has to be big. Google I/O is set for May 19th and 20th. We can't wait.

Today at Google IO, Google has announced the Google TV platform. It will start right up in Television instead of into a specific interface. It can change channels, access your DVR, and even access the original guide. You can use your own remote or use a new remote control that Google will offer.

The hardware itself will include TV sets, blu-ray players, companion set boxes. Will work with any existing cable or satellite box. There are 4 key components: WiFi/ethernet, you existing cable/satellite via HDMI, it comes with an IR blaster to control your other components, and a special IP protocol for Dish network boxes. The boxes will have powerful CPU and GPU and support HD content. The processor will be the Intel Atom.

All input devices will require both a keyboard and a pointing device. Or, yes, you can just use your Android Phone. Since Android supports voice input, you can voice search for television shows(!). You can also 'send' web pages you have on your Android device to your television. They will publish the remote control protocol so 3rd party developers can make remote apps.

The Google TV is built off Android 2.1 (will update later). The browser is Google Chrome. It includes a full Flash 10.1 plugin for Chrome. Android Apps will also be usable on the TV since it's built on Android - though that feature doesn't look like it will be available at launch.

Hardware partners include Sony with TVs and Blu-ray players, Logitech with companion boxes. Coming in Fall 2010. Google is also partnered with Dish network, so they'll get the best experience. Best Buy will be selling it all.

Google will offer a new and improved 'guide' that is easier to navigate, they wanted to make TV as easy to navigate as the web. So they simply offered a search box that will search both TV and web. You can search for a channel, a show, and more. If you search for your favorite show, you can set it to record directly from the quick search box.

You can also search the "Series result" for content on TV and also TV on the web. You can search free sites (like the network sites) or Amazon VOD to download and watch the episode.

The TV switches seamlessly from Television to a web browser. They are also hoping to make content more discoverable. They will offer Amazon VOD and Netflix directly from the quick launcher:

Posted Image

The Quick Launcher also has "suggestions" of content for you to watch based on your viewing history. You can also set bookmarks from the web and visit them.

You can go directly to YouTube.com as usual - or any web page, actually, without reformatting it. Basically they are offering a straight-up web browser on your TV combined with a Quick Search box.

You can also put the TV you're watching into Picture-in-Picture mode so you can search the web as you're watching TV

Logitech embarque déja avec Google :)

Logitech has gone ahead and put out a few details on their "companion box" for the just announced Google TV. They plan on 'leveraging [their] Harmony remote technology," which will mean you won't need a separate IR repeater to control the other elements of your home entertainment system and will mean you can still have a single remote for the whole shootin' match. Well, actually that's not true, as their set-top box will also "include a controller that's specifically designed to optimize the Google TV experience - combining a compact keyboard, remote control, and touchpad." Logitech will also apparently have their own smartphone app to control their box.

Logitech also hopes to add an HDTV camera and video calling software so you can do videoconferencing right from your couch.

We don't know the specific branding yet, nor do we have a release date beyond "later this fall." One thing we do know now, and this might depress a bunch of you, is that Logitech says their product will be US-only, we suspect the same might be true for Google TV in general.

un preview de la TV de Sony Google TV.
Seule chose qui me bug

Google TV services will be available on several devices, but the 46-inch Sony Internet TV is the exclusive launch partner so it’s the only HDTV you can purchase this fall.


Je vais attendre que Samsung ou d'autre embarque Sony on l'habitude d'avoir des prix pas mal élevé.

The lucky 600 or so attendees of this year's Google Zeitgeist apparently received a surprise none of them were expecting. We have in the past seen Google give out various items at their events, but this one was rather unexpected, a Google TV unit. Not only did they receive the Google TV but it appeared to be part of a package with a Sony Bravia as well as Dish TV and included a complimentary Best Buy installation of it all. Quite a package to receive as a gift for attending the conference, Google seems to up the bar each time!

j'aurais du y aller :lol:. une chance qu'il offre l'installation ca doit mal revenir dans une smart par exemple :woohoo:

Sony just took the wraps off its Google TV line, and it's a double shot. If having everything bundled together into one sleek unit is your style, Sony is offering Internet TV models starting at just $599.99 for a full 1080p HD 24-inch model, going up the ladder to the top of the line 46-inch version for $1399.99.


They all have full LED backlighting, a picture-in-picture style system Sony is calling Dual View, and are being powered by Intel processors.If a component-style setup is your thing, you can grab the Internet TV Blu-ray player for $399.99. It's also powered by Intel, offers built in WiFi, and support for Sony's Dual View technology. Both Television sets and the Blu-ray player will be available for purchase on Oct 16 at Sony Style, and followed "shortly" by Best Buy.

Sur le PS3? w00t :D

Rumor has it that Sony is apparently bringing the Google TV to its gaming console, the PlayStation 3. According to unverified sources this add-on could hit the gaming console early Spring of 2011. What this could mean is that Google TV could be connected with the gaming console allowing users stream TV content over their PS3. Sweet!

Having Google’s awesomeness on the PlayStation 3 would also give the system a much needed addition - running apps. This will turn it from a gaming console to a true multimedia station. An integration with Google TV could make the PlayStation quite a hot media and entertainment device.

Users will have access to apps like Facebook and Twitter over their PS3 – something that Xbox users already boast of. Such an integration would definitely give the PlayStation a platform to compete with the Xbox which is ahead in streaming services.

I would like to see the Android platform become a part of the PS3 operating system. Wondering if it’s even possible? Yes, it is very possible! Here is a hint. Remember when Sony removed the ‘Other OS’ feature from the PlayStation 3 which removed support for installing Linux? Google TV is based on Android which is based on Linux – just do the math. Don’t forget that PlayStation 3 Tagline: It Only Does Everything.

ca serais tout un move de la part de Sony
j'aurais cru que leur logique aurais été de le faire au PS4 mais il semble pas voir le bout de la console pour le moment

j'ai aussi vu un principe intéressant, un app qui stream dans Chrome en fullscreen sans lag les jeux plusieur gros jeux étais supporter
