Earlier this month, we had reported that Google is working with Dish TV to bring a TV Listing search service that could be based on the Android operating system. Now, it appears that there is more to the story.
Acording to a story published on the New York Times, Google is working on developing an Atom powered set-top box that will could introduce us to a “Google TV” platform. According to the sources, Google may be opening the platform for third party developers to bring add-on plugins, much in the same way as third party apps are available on the Android marketplace.
Intel is assumed to be powering the devices while Sony is set to be developing the set top boxes. The report claims Logitech to be working on a compatible remote control for the platform.
None of the companies confirmed the report.
