A few days ago we heard that Logitech had decided to discontinue their Google TV set top box, the Logitech Revue due to poor sales performance and adoption by users.
However, It’s not all over for Google TV as it seems there are still companies (big companies) that are still interested in using the Google TV platform on their hardware.
And now, the latest new from Bloomberg is that Google in partnership with electronics giant LG will be unveiling a new TV that integrates the search giants software with an announcement at the Consumer Electronics Show in January next year.
After not having much success with the Logitech Revue, Google are trying to build a coalition around it’s TV software, and there is no better way to start than enlisting the help of the second-largest TV maker to help keep up the support and adoption of Google TV.
Hopefully the future holds good things for Google TV and perhaps if the platform is able to get a wide user base, Google may be able to renegotiate with some of the major broadcast networks including CBS Corp and News Corp’s Fox network, to bring much needed on demand content to the service.
Since the updated version of Google TV, it seems that it’s had a sudden surge of popularity, so perhaps at CES next year, it might not only be LG that are showing off hardware that features Google’s software.
