Google is announcing a new partnership.
HBO, Netflix, Pandora and the NBA are just a few of the big-name brands teaming up with Google for the rollout of Google TV. The web giant’s “multimillion-channel TV” system is expected to launch some time this fall. Run by Google’s Android operating system, it will let users view all kinds of Web content on their televisions.
Google joins fellow tech company Apple in making the move into the world of television before the holiday season. While online entertainment has emerged as a viable option through sites such as YouTube and Hulu, there are still significantly more television viewers than Web users worldwide.
