The company’s Google TV family includes the Android-based “Review” STB (set-top box), large and mini remote controls, free iPhone and Android remote control apps, and a video cam. The $299 Android-powered Review acts as an intelligent hub for the Google TV setup, which minimally consists of the Review box, a TV, and an Internet connection. To this, a maximal configuration would add a cable TV box, typically with DVR capabilities, plus an A/V receiver. A/V sources usable on the Review include live or DVR’d cable shows, static or streaming A/V content from the Web, and static or streaming A/V content from DLNA-compliant devices on the home LAN or an attached USB drive. Initially only Dish Networks DVRs are fully supported, but that is expected to change by mid-2011. Here's a YouTube demonstrating Google TV.
