The Google TV will access Google's search engine to look through live programmes, DVR recordings and the web. It then provides a short list of results enabling the users to view what they want with the push of a button.

Apart from Sony manufacturing the devices, which will be marketed as Sony Internet TVs, Logitech International will be building a Google TV appliance that can work with current high-definition TVs.
