Has anyone heard any rumors of what lies ahead for Google TV?
Today it was announced that GTV is getting Play Store for Movies and TV. Yeah, I know, kind of amazing that it wasn't available before. But this is what the Nexus Q had going for it that GTV didn't.
I want to see a reference device for Google TV that takes the best of GTV and Nexus Q, plus adds the ability to connect to local storage (a la Boxee) and perhaps have a solution for DVR when not paired with a Cable/Satellite service. All of this controlled through a bundled remote or using a tablet or Android phone app.
My wish list:
- Google Play Content (TV, movies, music, apps)
- Third party apps (Amazon, Netflix, Hulu, voodoo, etc.)
- Connect to Cable/Satellite
- Play live HD TV (over the air)
- Ability to play from local storage
- Ability to Record Live TV to local/remote storage/DVR (when using cable/satellite)
- Combined TV Guide/media browser experience for all sources
- Hardware remote that doesn't suck
- App remote (nexus 7, phone, etc.)
I would jump at the ability to do this while I wait for Google Fiber to come to Chicago...
What have you heard? What would you like to see on a Google reference device?
