Google TV heading for the UK's screens

26 August 2011

google TV old Steel yourselves, for Google TV is coming to the UK! Yes, really! It’ll be announced in full later today by chief Googler Eric Schmidt when he makes a big speech at the Edinburgh Televison Festival.

But before he reveals the fine details of it all, the basic upshot is that it will allow you, the Google TV user, to toggle between regular TV viewing and internet browsing on your telly with a single click, without having to faff around with changing over cables and suchlike tomfoolery.

There’ll also be easy access to catch-up services such as BBC iPlayer and the ITV Player, and a high-definition version of YouTube so you can catch up with videos of cats. Better still, this mind-blowing futuristic TV service will be controllable by your smartphone instead of the old fuddy-duddy method of using a remote control.

We’ll bring you more info as soon as Schmidt spills it from out of his Googly facehole later on...

    Sounds a lot like the software in my current Bravia TV... It's not perfect, but iPlayer HD is awesome. It would be nice to have ITV player too, but would I want to buy another device for this... hmmm.

    I bet I have the freedom of public speech about crimes which had endangered human lives, and I also bet protecting human lives supersedes doing business; but dare Eric Schmidt publicly deny any of these accusations? Google's Eric Schmidt had involved himself into crimes which had endangered human lives. He has not paid for his crime. Dare he publicly deny anything I said? 0. Updats of Stanford student May Zhou's case which Eric Schmidt used to threaten my life for sake of Sebastian Thrun[ ] 1. Message to The Hill, see Comments part in [ ] to tell what's Eric Schmidt's problem. 2. ... Investigation from authorities on my tip confirms that MayZhou's case is actually a murder instead of the initially ruled suicide by police, and that it is people on Schmidt and Thrun's side who's behind May Zhou's murder case in order to threaten me and to terrorize Stanford. And the power on Thrun and Schmidt's side did try to plot a murder on me while I was in California. Before the case could be ultimately clarified in public, neitherThrun nor Schmidt's name is clear in such plotted murders ... [ ]
