More entertainment choices with Google TV

With Google TV, that big screen in your living room is an endless opportunity for entertainment. Live TV and the web are bringing you more options than ever before, and today, we’re adding a few more.

More entertainment options with Google Play
You already have access to a variety of apps on Google Play, and soon you’ll be able to find movies, TV shows, and music from Google Play to stream on Google TV. Google Play works across devices, so you can rent and start watching a movie on your Google TV, keep watching on your tablet on the move, and finish watching on Google TV. The TV & Movies app will also show Google Play content, adding to the more than 100,000 TV episodes and movies available in the app. The full power of Google Play will be available later this summer on all Google TV devices.

More choice for consumers, now with Sony and Vizio
We’re partnering with four of the top TV manufacturers in the world to bring you new products in various form factors. This week, Sony and Vizio joined LG in launching a new generation of Google TV-powered products. You’ll also find Sony Google TV products in nine countries over the coming months, and more partners and products are on the way.

More tools for you to get on TV
For all our developers out there, we’ve got new APIs, libraries, and code to create whole new experiences for Google TV. Build the killer second screen app, take advantage of improved media playback and digital rights management, and integrate devices directly to Google TV. Developers around the world have created hundreds of apps optimized for TV like SiriusXMRevision3 and Thuuz, and you can see some of them at Google I/O this week. Visit our Google TV Developers site to find all kinds of tools, and keep in touch with us on our Google TV Developer +Page.

As more Google TV’s come to consumers around the world this year, we want to bring you more ways to get involved with the big screen, whichever side of the screen you’re on.

Google TV lands in the UK

Two years ago, we launched Google TV in the U.S. to bring the best of Google and the Web to your TV, and we’ve been improving it ever since. YouTube’s been tailored for the big screen; Google Play now offers thousands of mobile apps and hundreds optimized for TV; the Web is now at your fingertips with Chrome; and you can search whatever you want—all on top of enjoying the great entertainment available on TV.

Starting today, Google TV devices will be available for pre-order in the U.K. and the U.S., from our partner Sony with its Internet Player with Google TV. Sony's 2012 plans include bringing the Internet Player with Google TV to Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and Netherlands.

For example, in the U.K. you’ll be able to pop live TV into the background while you read up on The Guardian’s website with Chrome, catch up on the latest episode of EastEnders on the BBC iPlayer, view Lauren Luke’s latest make-up tips on YouTube, and choose from the hundreds of apps optimized for TV in Google PlayTo get a better sense of the benefits of Google TV, check out this video.

You can learn more about Google TV at Google I/O this week, where you’ll see the latest from our partners and developers. Follow the action live online

We’re at the beginning of a journey of transformation for TV, and we hope you’ll join us for the ride. 

A world of learning and adventure for your kids to enjoy, thanks to Ameba on Google TV

Guest to the Google TV blog, Kim Lachance Shandrow, Ameba’s Digital Content Manager shares all the great content your kids can enjoy on Ameba.

Ever wish you could let your kids watch TV without having to sit right over their shoulders to make sure everything’s kosher? I’m talking about younger kids, ages 2 to 12. Curious little explorers who still like to watch fun, innocent -- and, yes, even educational -- shows, like The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That, BusyTown Mysteries, and WordWorld.  

Where can your kiddos get all those great shows? On Ameba’s new Google TV app, where you’ll never, ever have to helicopter parent what your kids watch. In fact, Ameba is so family-friendly and easy for kids to use, you won’t even have to help them choose what to watch. They’ll love being in charge.

Ameba’s visually intuitive Google TV app was designed specifically to put younger kids in the driver’s seat of their viewing experience. It’s bright, fun, and easy to navigate. Plus, there’s no inappropriate content or commercials for kids to accidentally crash into.

In two clicks or less, even preschool-aged kids can easily find and play their favorite Ameba shows and discover new ones. Finally, you can sit back, relax, and let the kids watch what they want. Better yet, they’ll laugh and learn the whole time.
If your little sleuth likes unraveling mysteries, she’ll love solving cliffhangers with Huckle Cat, Lowly Worm, and friends on BusyTown Mysteries. Or, if your little one’s a fan of Dr. Seuss, bring them along for a wild Thinga-ma-jigger ride with Sally, Nick, and The Cat in the Hat Knows a Lot About That.

Have a tween? They’ll dig Ruby Skye P.I., a hilarious indie mystery series starring a quirky teen detective. Without spoiling it, let’s just say it’s about a girl trying to make sense of a nutty neighbor with fake pets, missing brownies, and a disappearing best friend. It’s all in a day’s work for Ruby Skye, P.I.!

As a mom of three, I totally get that kids are always hungry for new stuff to watch. That why we’re always adding fresh, new shows to our library. Stay tuned for lots more soon.

It’s easy to add our new Ameba app to your Google TV device for free. You’ll get instant access to thousands of hours of all the latest Ameba TV shows and videos – streamed directly to your big screen for fast, convenient, and anytime viewing from the comfort your home. Trust me, your kids will thank you.
