The Google TV smart television platform is coming to the UK, offering a combination of internet services and streaming video on almost any conventional TV. Sony Europe is producing the first UK-bound devices with the NSZ-GS7 Internet Player due to arrive next month. It’s expected to cost £200 and will be followed after a few months by the £280 NSZ-GP9 Blu-ray Disc player.

Google TV is notable for its use of the Android operating system, providing a familiar interface and the ability to add applications from the Google Play app store to the Google TV player.

Gildas Pelliet, Sony’s European Head of Marketing, said “Expanding the reach and interoperability of the powerful Android platform with Sony’s smartphones, tablets and renowned Audio & Video products, we are proud to continue our relationship with Google through the introduction of the new Google TV Internet Player. Entertainment content is available through so many channels and sites, and Google TV helps consumers easily find what they want to watch, listen or play with the freedom of the internet and using the familiar Chrome browser.”

As well as offering a remote control device, Google TV can also be controlled via compatible smartphones by a free Media Remote app.
