New York
– Google (NASD: GOOG) is testing a TV and Web video programming search service with
satellite TV provider DISH Network (NASD: DISH), The Wall Street Journal reported, citing
people familiar with the matter.

The service operates on set-top boxes that are
running elements of Google’s Android operating system, and lets users search
both broadcast and online video sources, such as YouTube.

It is currently being
tested with a "very small number of Google employees and their
families," sources told The Journal.

The company hopes to combine the
programming search service with its own TV advertising service.

  1. I actually played with the Google TV because I am an employee at DISH Network and I must admit, it surpassed all of my expectations. It is very simple to set up and it combines the ability to watch TV with DISH and browse the internet. I have to say that it is pretty neat- and it is easier to use than most people would believe! I would highly recommend that customers give it a try because you definitely won’t be disappointed! -Joe
