Google has given its upcoming Google TV service its very own website, which includes a video tour, advice for developers and exactly how you can get Google TV in the home.
The tour on the site explains that Google TV is: your TV complete with search engine; a place where you can browse the whole of the web; a service which brings apps to the TV; and the fact you can watch TV and browse the web on the screen at the same time.
Google will be televised
The website is glossy and explains how seamless Google TV will be for those who use it.
The idea of web on your TV, however, will be difficult one for consumers to understand – considering that TV is 'lean back' and web 'lean forward'.
But Google is hoping that integration with Android phones – you can use your phone as a TV remote – will make consumers understand that the internet and its copious amounts of video content will come alive with Google TV.
