Android Market coming to Google TV platform soon

Google TV hasn’t been that popular so far despite the fact that the platform has some interesting features. The main problem is that many of the major content carries like the major TV networks and Hulu have blocked Google TV users from being able to view their content on the TV. One of the things that I think could save the Google TV platform would be access to apps from the Android Market on the Google TV platform

Apps on the platform have been mentioned before and are known to have been in development for a while now. A new version of the Android Market for the Google TV platform is now officially noted to be coming in the "very short term" and that announcement came directly for the GM for Google TV products at Logitech yesterday.

While the manager, Ashish Arora, stopped short of giving a definitive date for the launch of the Android Market on the Google TV Revue set-top box Logitech makes, he said, "It will happen shortly. It's a given that it will happen this year, 100 percent." He continued saying, "We're talking about a very short term." Arora also said that the apps offered for the Google TV "won't just be weather apps."

    I am really excited to hear that they are finally going to be getting the Android market on Google TV. Being a Dish Network employee really has its perks because I was able to get a Logitech Revue with Google TV and unlike our competitors we have the ability to integrate it with VIP model DVRs. This means when I run a search for a movie it will look through the internet, my recorded TV, and the program guide. I read an article earlier that showed Time Warner was waiting on getting the Revue to see how well it does. I have a feeling with this new update it will be getting a lot more attention now.
