Well, yes, I think YouTube is their biggest asset for their TV business. They create the TV but I doubt they get in it only for the hardware sales, they want to take over the TV ads as well (or even more so). How? Still not sure.

@Anna, sometime back i read a business model where viewers either had to pay for ad free content or had to embrace ad during the content. The common practice right now is to have a minimum subscription per month for viewer and then the rest of the revenue is generated through ads. I hope Google could come up with a smarter and ad-free content viewing.

@Jacob, It is good to hear all these technological expansion and diversification that Google has embarked on. Do you feel this is part of a strategic plan in their acquicision of Motoral Mobile?

@ Mr. Roques, Google's aim is to provide the software platform. While its partners such as Napster, Vevo and Pandora will hopefully provide large amount of content. As you may be aware, Internet connected applications form a central part of Google TV.

I think with the internet TV the users can share their ideas in no time and can exchange their thoughts. In these days the number of people who uses the conventional TVs are going down due to interent if we combine them together its a huge transition that we bring.

Hello, I have a question... they are not going into the production of any content or are they? Are they simply looking forward to create the platform for TV channels to broadcast their own content? ... TV has always seemed a good choice for Google since they are in the Ad business and what's bigger than TV? (only the internet and that's only after they took over it).

Ann, I think Google is diversifying their business model. Starting with search engine and local host services, they had diversified to different Google apps, labs, maps, street view etc. Then internet browser, chrome and android OS, recently they stepped in to mobile business by acquiring Mortolla. Some time back, they had a plan for Google mobile also, but dropped. Now they have a plan for entering to TV broadcasting area too. Really they are doing a good business.

@Himanshugupta, Google intends to introduce a different revenue model for Internet TV. Eric Schmidt, the chairman, said the company is not advocating free TV because this will hurt broadcasters. Of course, Google has to take this approach because major networks in the United States did not embrace Google TV, which hurt the service. I assume Google has to take baby steps in the UK first and then transition to a mass-market model once it gets broadcasters onboard.

I have seen the Google TV, it is all about giving users the ability to find the content they want across a wide variety of mediums including broadcast TV, Youtube and anywhere on the Internet. With a built-in web browser, also pushing the concept of web browsing on the television, that would enable viewers to quickly pull up Web content on TV, including photos, video and music, using an on-screen search box like the one on its website.  Its really shows the power of technology.

Anna, do u know what will be the business model that google will use and how will it fair against the current pay and view model. We all hate long advertisement/commercial breaks during our favorite shows. Will there be any other revenue stream or all the content will be paid content? 

I know that companies are working on hardware/softwares to integrate the capabilities of internet into TV. Is google working on any hardware company?
