Google TV frustrated by Hollywood

Tuesday 21 December 2010 | 13:17 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Google is curbing sales of Google TV, its operating system for connected TV. The company has asked a number of new hardware partners to delay their demonstrations originally planned for the Las Vegas trade show CES in January, the New York Times reported. Google TV has already been on the market a couple months as part of TVs from Sony and a Logitech box. Toshiba, LG and Sharp were reportedly to show new TV sets at CES (the annual Consumer Electronics Show), while Samsung and Vizio are expected to go ahead with private demos of Google TV. Google TV is not the only product facing delays.
