Google TV Reboots

Google TV is revamping its software, but doesn't plan to put out new hardware until next year.

A software update comes to Google TV, the internet-connected TV experience from the search giant. Google will be rolling out the update to Sony devices this week, and to Logitech devices "soon thereafter," according to Google's official blog post on the matter. There are no plans for a hardware refresh before the holiday season.

A quick primer: What exactly is Google TV? First announced in May of 2010, Google TV is a software platform that integrates with your existing cable/satellite setup, adding a search feature that makes it easy to find content from your cable provider and from the Internet alike. It uses the Android operating system, and it competes with other set-top boxes like Apple TV and Roku. The service, which officially launched about a year ago, is built into certain TVs, or you can get it by doling out $100 for a specific box from Sony or Logitech.
