On Friday we heard a rumor that Google TV
would be launching in the UK some time within the next six months, and
now Google’s Eric Schmidt has confirmed that Google TV will launch in
the UK in early 2012.
Google has said that the UK version of Google TV will feature content
from popular on demand services like the BBC’s iPlayer and the ITV
player, with more services being added before the launch.
Google TV hasn’t exactly been that popular in the US, with many manufacturers of Google TV devices
dropping the price of their hardware including Logitech and Sony, it
will be interesting to see if Google can make Google TV popular here in
the UK and Europe.
