The New Google Experience with the Google TV, Not!

The Google TV is more than just a new experience. It is the key to the door of future technology. About a century ago the Internet was the new amazing creation, but now imagine the Internet and the feature of browsing through the Internet apart of your TV experience today. Users are able to watch TV on their own time schedule. They are able to save favorite movies or videos and pause, fast-forward and rewind anything being watched.

 

Picture Netflix when watching movies on the Google TV. The different channels and categories of movies are displayed clearly across the screen for easy access to hover over them to get a description of what they are about. The movies are endless, and you can switch between Internet movies and movies on TV. The Internet integration is what makes this a brand new experience for TV lovers so much more enjoyable. Also, viewers can watch entire seasons of their favorite shows by the click of a button.

 

YouTube is one of the options apart of your side panel on your TV screen. With a click you can switch over to the website where you will come across more options such as your play list, watch later list and the browser to find a specific video of your choice. Your TV becomes a huge search engine able to give you multiple ways in watching a live event. For sports fans, having many available ways like dish network, Internet or HBO to watch a live game only makes the experience a more favorable one.

 

Are you an iPhone user because if so this will blow your mind? Remember your favorite apps, well those are all available. Some favorite apps are Flixster, Google Music, Pandora and Angry Birds. Yes! I said it, Angry Birds. All of your favorite games can be saved on your TV ready for you to access them at anytime. The Google TV is evolving the world as we know it, allowing us to multitask and share our experiences with others through cyber space.

 

One of the coolest features is sharing photos straight from a phone, or camera through your TV while chatting with your love ones on another tab about your photos. The method of doing everything on the same device makes emailing, and uploading photos to Facebook or other websites very easy.

 

However, one downside to the TV is that it did not make as many sales because most of the revenue was returned to buyers because many websites heard of the new technology and purposely blocked streaming to the Google TV. Mainly the hype about the TV was all about its Internet use, so without that there is no possible way people will buy the TV.
