GoogleTV

GoogleTV seems interesting.

It’s basically just like Sezmi, except it works with DVRs and STBs from any TV provider, not just OTA. Oh, and no monthly fee either (I’m guessing.)

I had Sezmi free for a few months during the LA pilot program and was so unimpressed with the hardware and implementation that I returned the whole kit at the end of the program. I hope Google can get it right.

I’ve never seen a device that wasn’t an A/V receiver or switch that included HDMI passthru ports. In fact I thought that DRM restrictions prevented that from working in most situations…but Logitech’s GoogleTV box includes it and indeed all GoogleTV STBs will.

Coming this Fall!
