In case you haven't heard, Google is launching Google TV this fall. It is the assimilation of Broadcast TV and the Internet and I can't wait.
Hulu - ABC Nightline: Smart TV: Google TV?
I spend more time watching entertainment content on my computer, than I do on TV. Every Football season I have to have a laptop or netbook open so that I can watch the game and follow my fantasy points simultaneously.
For the last 6 months, I didn't even have cable TV and have grown accustomed to watching favorite shows at my leisure either on my computer, or some limited online content like Netflicks, Amazon Movies, and such via wifi on my T.V.
Since Football season started , I couldn't hold out anymore and had to finally get cable T.V.
I am highly disappointed.
250 channels of garbage, repeats, reruns, shopping channels and commercials and 20 of those are Hispanic channels that do absolutely nothing for me...I don't speak the language. I haven't missed anything and all of the programming is still the same. If it weren't for the sports, news, and documentary channels I could really do without it, and I still have to watch the tech shows on Hulu.
Combining the 2 is the natural progression. To be able to Skype, Watch the game and Facebook all at the same time (maybe even do some work) on my T.V. is really exiting and it's about time.
I have already ordered a new HD Plasma and am counting the days until the launch. I will definitely be one of the first buyers.
Is anyone else as exited as I am about this?
