Google released a video explaining exactly how "Google TV" actually works, and capabilities it offers: it's all about having full internet including Flash 10.1 as well as Android apps in your living room. Also, Google wants to dip into the lucrative $70 Billion TV ad industry too.
Google TV runs Android Operating System, and the currently known features are:
- Search: It's built into TV experience. Search for "Survivor" and get a list of results that include live TV (select to watch now), episodes airing later (select to record to DVR) and web content related to it.
- Integration with Android phones: Over WiFi, an Android phone can become a remote and you can even go so far as to use voice search, too.
- Partners: Sony, Intel, Dish Network, Logitech, Adobe and Best Buy.
