Google TV release in Europe early 2012

/ On : 11:06 PM/
ShoutBloger: Google Inc. reportedly will begin to launch his own TV service in Europe, early 2012. This is expressed by Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt as reported by Reuters on Sunday August 28, 2011.

Google TV service, which lets users access the Web and television content through a browser on the TV screen, has actually been introduced in the United States since late last year. Unfortunately, these services do not get a warm welcome as the initial expectations. Even a number of popular U.S. broadcast networks like NBC, Fox and CBS to block these services.

All three networks, as well as several other names in television and telecommunications industry, did not want Google to 'steal' their share of ad revenue without contributing to creating the program.

Some in the U.S. worry we will compete with the broadcasters and content creators. In fact just the opposite of our goals, said Schmidt.

We want to support the content industry by providing an open platform for the generation of a new TV in order to continue to grow, as Android becomes open platform for future phones, he added.

Hopefully, Google TV could be released in Europe early next year, said Schmidt.
