Google is always dabbling in new adventures and ways to increase their profit margins. Their most recent endeavor is providing search engine results on live TV! Currently, Google is in the testing stages with Dish Network to create an exclusive TV programming search engine service.
This is still in it’s initial testing stage and is not set to be released anytime soon. Supposedly, there is an additional box that will search through Dish network and YouTube for entertainment for you to view on yout television set. This may be similar to the premier TiVo service announced early March 2010.
This is not the first time Google has dabbled into the realm of television. In 2008 Google AdWords launched Google TV Ads for companies to advertise their ads through. This has not been as successful as other Google ventures, but there is always time to tweak their platform and make changes. this could very well be the future of television.
What is your take on Google entering into your home TV set? Are you excited or nervous to see this happen?
