Google TV Review
Google TV is a new experience that combines traditional TV, the web, and apps together with search and discovery functionality. It is a software platform that is pre-installed on your TV or PC that connects to a TV.
Google TV is regarded as a Smart TV platform from Google co-developed by Google, Intel, Sony and Logitech. Whether you’re on Sony’s Internet TV, or Logitech’s Revue box, the basic Google TV interface is the same.
Google TV is built on Android and Chrome platforms that provide an easy way to bring your apps to TV. Obviously, the Android built used for Google TV isn’t the same as what’s used on phones. One of Google TV’s most-promoted features is Dual View. Hitting the Dual View button while watching TV shrinks the TV image down and overlays it over the bottom right of the interface, so you can keep up with TV while browsing the web or using app.
Google TV allows you to search across the web, broadcast TV, or with certain equipment, even local DVR recordings to find content you are searching for. You can use your Google TV keyboard to type it in, then it will search the web, available channels, and DVR to find episodes you can view.
Google TV leverages many of Google’s existing products. Google’s Chrome browser provides a gateway to the Internet, allowing consumers to browse web sites and watch television, in a row. Consumers can access HBO, CNBC, and content from other providers through the Chrome browser.

Although setting up each Google TV device is slightly different, but the basic process of setting is almost the same. You have to go through several steps to configure the device for your TV, screen size, network, and TV source. It is simple to set up the Logitech Revue as it involves connecting five wires and stepping through 12-15 menus that takes about 30 minutes to complete, including a delightful four-step over scan adjustment.
