Google TV marks important step with content deals

Wednesday 6 October 2010 | 14:20 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Market Commentary
Google TV has entered a new phase with the launch of its own demonstration website (http://www.google.com/tv), a blog covering the latest developments (http://googletv.blogspot.com) and most important, a number of content deals. With a launch in the US just around the corner, Google is generating significant buzz about the new product. This is one of Google's most important product introductions, but success is far from certain. The market for 'connected TV' appears ripe for the taking, just as 3D after years of insignificance made a breakthrough with the help of the film Avatar.
