Sony’s next Google TV will be a dongle

August 30th, 2013

Engadget has some interesting details about the next Google TV device coming from Sony: After the company tried everything from integrating the platform into TV sets to Blu-ray players to standalone boxes, it’s now going down the Chromecast route and putting the whole system on a dongle. Except, this one will offer HDMI pass-through for live TV access as well. No word yet when the device will officially be unveiled.

Engadget HD Podcast 327 – 12.04.2012

December 5th, 2012

Engadget HD Podcast 320 - 10.16.2012 Welcome to the Engadget 4K Podcast. We’re not changing our name yet but if trends continue we may have to slip an “Ultra” in there somewhere as super high-res news flowed forth last week from Sony, Red and Sharp. We’ve also got some interesting news from Ceton and a preview of Ben’s experience with the Echo, as we say a (not-so) melancholy goodbye to rear-projection TVs. With CES closing in it’s also time for leaks, and we’ve seen two different Google TV devices, plus info about the upcoming Redbox Instant streaming service. There’s much more within, so go ahead and press play.

While Samsung pushes ahead on attracting apps to its Smart TVs using its own platform and LG, Sony and Vizio align with Google TV, there are still reasons to believe that the smart TV will fail to have tremendous impact as Switched On discussed last year. Blu-ray players, video game consoles and cheap boxes from Apple, Roku, Netgear and others allow consumers to expand their video options while integrated networking provides gateways to content from smartphones, tablets and PCs.
