Google TV might be “dead”, but that doesn't mean the idea is with the giant tech company looking to reinvent it’s first concept into a no so beta version. What Google is looking to do is take a page from Apple TV and create a competing product although this is going to be powered by Android. This could turn out to be a big upside for Google's version of a TV, as Android is more compatible with other devices and their is already a few videos of users who have turned their whole home into a Android powered machine.
Nexus TV as it’s being called was first reported in early July of 2012, but only this past week has more rumors started to fly about in the tech communities.Browsing the Internet, streaming services like Netflix and even playing games have all been green flagged as possible features to be included with the new TV powered by Google. 4-5 users around the world have already been reported to be favoring and using Android based devices in comparison to Apple’s iPhone and also the Windows phone.
This is why opening the doors for developers to get their hands on the Android operating system from day one has been turning the tide into a more “open-sourced” environment opposed to a locked down one like Apple promotes.
Live TV is reported to not be included with the new Google Nexus TV, this is because they are looking to avoid having to negotiate with major corporations. This could be a deal breaker for many, but most new age thinkers have already transfered from having to listen to the poor journalism news programs show in the mainstream and regular programming can already be found on sites like Hulu+, Netflix, HBO Go and many others.
The release of the Google Nexus TV is rumored to be in sometime early 2014 as it’s also been mentioned that Android developers may have already gotten a chance to get their hands on a device for early development.
