Google TV Remote app for iPhone lands in the App Store

Following in the footsteps of Apple's Remote app for the iPhone and Apple TV, Google has released an iOS version of its official Google TV remote app that made its debut for Android back in December last year. The app functions in exactly the same way as its Android brother, with the same interface, voice search, gestures and a plethora of buttons. In fact, the only thing that stands out as ...

Google to launch unlimited video streaming service in the U.K. first

Google, no doubt more than a little leery of Netflix's entrenchment in the U.S., is planning to launch an unlimited on-demand movie streaming service through YouTube in the U.K. The Big G has been talking with Hollywood studios for months, and has set aside $100 million to secure some big deals. According to one Hollywood executive, Google will launch both video-on-demand and 'channels,' which ...

Google One Pass lets content publishers offer simple subscription payments

Google, in a move that shatters any lingering questions about whether it has been building a digital newsstand for Android, has just announced One Pass. The new system aims to give publishers a simple way to let consumers pay for content and then access it across a number of different platforms, with Google Checkout providing the payment backend. We strongly suspect those might include native And...

Google TV jailbroken -- underlying Android system exposed

Google TV has successfully been jailbroken using a hardware-software double-team hack. Spurred on by Android developer Howard Harte's $1000 bounty for the first successful jailbreak, a group calling themselves GTVhacker dev team rose to the challenge, and released a 6-minute video of the their work to prove it (included after the break). What's the big deal? Well, in Harte's own words: "What t...

Google TV gets a big update, adds Netflix support

While tech pundits don't seem ready to give Google TV the thumbs up, yesterday's update certainly makes Google's home entertainment platform a bit more compelling. For starters, there's built-in Netflix support and a better movie search function -- which makes it easy to find your favorite Terry Gilliam flicks (if you're in the US, anyhow) and watch them on Netflix or Amazon Video on Demand. G...

YouTube Remote for Android -- control Google TV or Leanback from your phone

Google has just launched a new Android app -- YouTube Remote -- that turns your phone into the world's most expensive remote control. To use it, simply grab the app from the Android Market, sign into your YouTube (Google) account, and voilá: control of YouTube Leanback either on your PC or Google TV. Unfortunately, as the app is only available on the American Android Market, I'm unable ...

Google asks ABC, NBC and CBS to unblock Google TV

Google has entered into negotiations with three major TV networks -- ABC, NBC and CBS -- to allow Google TV users to access streaming TV episodes on the network websites. The three networks currently block their full-length episodes from Google TV, and a fourth network, Fox, is reportedly considering blocking Google TV as well. Meanwhile, cable channels, including HBO and Turner Broadcasting, have...

Nope, sorry: Hulu blocks Google TV

Well that didn't take long. Poor little Google TV -- Hulu doesn't want to be friends. It has again blocked access from your Chrome app even after changing its browser user agent. But who are we kidding? It's not exactly a surprise given that access to Hulu through other set-top boxes requires a Hulu Plus subscription, and we're sure Hulu wants to keep it that way. Google TV is, of course, ba...

Yes, you can watch Hulu on your Google TV

OK, so Google told Hulu they'd play nice and allow their Google TV browser to be blocked until the two companies could come to an agreement. But here's the thing. Google TV devices ship with the Chrome App. Chrome comes with Flash. There's no reason it couldn't play Hulu content, right? Right. And if there's one thing we know about Google and Chrome, it's that the Big G wants to bear hug de...

Google TV site launches, answers a lot of questions

Google TV is coming -- and judging by the new Google TV website, it's coming soon. Via the medium of shiny, black, stylish imagery, the site goes a long way to answering any and all questions you might have about the service. For sitting-in-the-living-room TV watchers it sounds really cool. If you sit at your computer all day, however, the feature list feels a little mundane. If you want ...

Boxee eyes HTML5 goodness, ditches Gecko for WebKit

Boxee, everyone's favorite open-source underdog in the emerging entertainment-center-in-a-box market, has been using Gecko for its on-board browser for years now. That's all about to change, according to Boxee's Lead Apps Developer Rob Spectre, who told GigaOM that the team was looking to make good use of HTML5, and saw a shift to WebKit as the best way to get there. Boxee users should expect to ...

Google TV demoed on video -- Google Chrome on board, slick search capabilities

Over at StuffWeLike they've posted a video gem from Comic Con 2010 (of all places) of Google TV being demoed to attendees. Comic Con? Hey, a demo's a demo -- who are we to argue? What you'll see in the video after the break is darn near a geek's TV dream come true. Apart from adding super-slick search abilities to your DIRECTV receiver (Google TV can search everything from the program guide to...

More on the upcoming Google TV (video)

If you missed the Google I/O keynote announcing the new Google TV service, I have good news! In fact, even if you saw the keynote presentation, you'll want to watch this video -- it's a lot smoother, easier to understand and a whole lot more concise than the slow-going oh-damn-we-have-Wi-Fi-interference Professor Charles Francis Xavier-esque demonstration. There isn't anything new feature-wise...
