Google and DISH are working together on a new search feature for its set-top box, there is not much known about the new venture — such as will it run on Android or Chrome OS. WSJ hints that it could be the former — but cannot back it up with evidence.
AppScout picks up on the fact that the news has left us with so many unanswered questions, is it just a search tool to find TV shows and pay-per-view — we do hope that it is much more than that — not sure what that will be though.
TechCrunch pitched the idea of Google featuring on a set-top box way back in 2007 — we wonder how they knew?
It is no secret that the software running a number of these set-top boxes are not that great — Android or Chrome OS will be very welcome by users. Let us hope that there will not be different version of the OS as Google has on their smartphones — it does get confusing.
