Google TV was the media’s darling last year in terms of the future of interactive television.
The problem was that Google couldn’t make a deal with the networks, and they couldn’t get access to any major bulk of content. So, Roku and Hulu started leading the pack.
But today, Google announced a Google TV add-on for the Android which will allow users to develop Google TV apps using the Android development tools they’re now familiar with. While this will immediately increase the number and quality of apps available for TV, this does little to increase the content available….unless Google actually does go ahead, as rumored, and acquires Hulu.
That would change everything.
