Google noticed that watching one‘s favorite television program is becoming more and more difficult, the user has to search through hundreds if not thousands of channels and times to find their program. After finding the program on the television providers guide or menu, one must either memorize the time of the show and adjust their schedule accordingly, or if DVR is installed, then the user can select to record the show, which means the user will have to find the recording later on their DVR list.
At Google's third annual developer conference in San Fransisco, which consists of over 5,000 developers who participated in the event, Google announced their next major innovation: Google TV.

But what is Google TV? Is Google starting their own television network? Will this be available on my smart phone?

Unfortunately Google TV is not a television network or provider, it is actually a platform to allow consumers to organize and watch their TV shows or movies in a much easier fashion.

Google noticed that watching one's favorite television program is becoming more and more difficult, the user has to search through hundreds if not thousands of channels and times to find their program. After finding the program on the television providers guide or menu, one must either memorize the time of the show and adjust their schedule accordingly, or if DVR is installed, then the user can select to record the show, which means the user will have to find the recording later on their DVR list.

Thanks to Google, this will no longer be such a bother. Users who take advantage of Google TV will be able to simply type in the program they would like to watch, and Google TV will search through your TV schedule for you, DVR list, YouTube, and other parts of the internet automatically for you. If the show hasn't aired yet, Google TV will be able to find the time and channel of the show, and patch it through to your DVR record list automatically for you.

Essentially what this application will do for the average end user, is simply ease the pain of trying to watch your favorite show, and give the user more actual watching time, and less time searching for their television content.

How will you be able to use Google TV on your TV? Google stated in the conference that they have been working with some popular television manufacturing companies to start producing new TVs with Google TV already installed, however Google has not yet provided any details of which specific television models will come with the application pre-installed.

The other way to use Google TV will be to buy a "box" which you connect to your current TV. The specific details on the Google TV box have also not yet been released. I personally am expecting a simple box type object which will be able to connect to your current television using composite, component, or HDMI, a remote that will be easy to type searches on, and possibly if we are lucky, a little bit of DVR storage memory.

Will Google TV have any other features? At the end of Google's short presentation, they eluded that Google TV aims to also add full internet capabilities to your TV. This means that you will be able to search the web, update your status, play games, etc.

Another capability that is likely to be released is a smart phone Google TV application which will allow you to use your account on the go to select which shows to record, and maybe even which shows to watch!

The amount of Google TV specific details are very minimal at this time, and hopefully in the near future more information will be released.
