Google (s GOOG) TV has been revamped with a new user interface, a bunch of new apps and access to the Android Market. Google TV Product Lead Rishi Chandra gave us a tour of the new version in this episode of Cord Cutters:


Show notes for this episode:

  • Google TV updates will start rolling out for Sony’s Google TV devices Sunday evening and should be available to all Sony Google TV owners by mid-week, according to Google. Updates for the Logitech Revue will follow soon after.
  • Logitech’s Revue currently only costs $99, which is a pretty good price.
  • Google TV is optimized to work with pay TV subscriptions, and Google execs have said in the past that the device isn’t made to cut the cord.
