Beginning of Google TV
Posted by George on September 27th, 2005

Can this be the beginning of Google TV? Google Video is streaming the UPN television show “Everybody Hates Chris” until Thursday. This comes at a time when Google place an employment ad for a product manager for Google TV and then deleted the ad:

In this role, you will provide leadership on product vision and execution of projects that enable using Google’s search and advertising technologies to enhance users’ Television viewing experience. […] You will identify key market trends that are shaping user behavior when watching Television. These include but not limited to the intersection of Internet and Television technologies, Video-On-Demand, Personal Video Recorders and emergence of next generation set-top-boxes with IP connectivity. You will then identify areas where use of Google’s search and advertising technology can enhance this user experience and define appropriate products to deliver these user benefits.

You can read more of the excerpt here at Search Engine Journal.

This is so good, I get to see Everybody Hates Chris without any commercial interruptions. I wonder if they will be doing this each week for this show.

“With Google Video, our mission is to make the world’s video content accessible and useful. The show debuted last week; now we’re making this accessible to users,” said Peter Chane, a senior business product manager with Google.

Chane indicated that other deals for television content might be in the works. “We’re not announcing anything at this time, but we are working with rights holders to bring more and more video online,” he said.
