Google announces Google TV

FRESNO, Calif. Thursday Google unveiled plans to deliver video from TV and the web onto a high definition set. They're calling it Google TV.

It will require a new set-top box to route all the sources, a faster processor, and a new kind of remote control.

Google has already lined up Sony, Logitech, Intel, dish network and best buy as partners.

"These are completely separate worlds for most people where I have all this great, compelling content on my television -- my favorite sports, my favorite shows, my favorite movies, and then this other world where I have all my great web video and my favorite websites," said Google Product Manager Rishi Chandra.

People will be able to do a Google search to find their video. There are predictions that watching video over the internet will grow steadily and surpass broadcast TV viewing in just ten years.
