You guys remember Google TV, right? LG does. While the platform hasn't exactly seen stellar adoption rates, the company is still pushing forward with it by integrating it into its new line of television sets. Previously, only two sized models including the software: 47" and 55". Next year, 42", 50", and 60" options will be added to the mix. The hardware will also feature a ridiculously thin bezel, just in case the RAZR M didn't satisfy your dreams of a world without borders.

In addition, while there aren't an details yet, LG is also touting "Google TV 3.0" for these new sets. We can't be entirely sure what features will be included, though voice search seems to be one of the selling points. So we can probably expect to see all of the other new features that Google announced last month. Beyond that, the sets will also have OnLive support built in.

We'll hear more about these televisions during CES next month, so keep an eye out.

  • Alex

    Google TV is just a mess. It needs to be done from scratch...

  • Alexander Procter

    Availability in my region please. I'm ready to replace my once state of the art 32" Panasonic. I really don't want to have to get what passes for a smart TV here.

    I honestly love my Google TV. (Sony 40-Inch Google TV) It has a nice guide for browsing TV. YouTube is amazing ever since they allowed queueing from your smartphone. Google Music is great for listening to my music. I can stream my videos from my computer to my TV. I would just like to see it updated to ICS/JB and be given some love and attention. Why do you still need Linux to build apps for it? Way to gimp development Google. D=

      Same hear... Sony Blu-ray GoogeTV... I'v been wanting to build apps for GoogleTV, but I'm using a windows computer....

      • Fran

        Look it this way, if you'd be forced to use Windows to build an app then you'd be forced to pay a minimum of 50$ for the Windows license. In the other side, if you need Linux to build an app then you only need to download the one you like the most for free.

        • Google_is_the_Higgs_Boson

          I do agree with that... But being that I can build Android apps on any platform already, I should be able to do the same with GoogleTV apps... I haven't really looked into, why they aren't supporting for building GoogleTV apps on windows tho... I do agree with you tho...

            It's only the emulator that has Linux-only support. You of course can still develop with an actual GoogleTV product, which I'd highly recommend doing anyway.

            Thanks!!!

    This is going to sound crazy but Google really needs to look to the WiiU and Microsoft's Smart glass. The whole OS should be written with dual screens in mind. Everyone usually has a device around them when watching tv. They should take advantage of that. You can already see them doing that with Google Fiber and the YouTube queue. I really like the new Prime time app but I should be able to make all my decisions on what to watch and what on through my tablet. Also integrate Google Movies and TV better.

    • Adrian Meredith

      They have! Android 4.2 introduced a whole bunch powerful features for creating app that work across multiple screens. Check out the android developers website.

  • DSx

    Amazing design!

    Isn't the future of Google TV just Android via stb's, hdmi phones or Ouya?

  • Jason

    Forget the new TV...

    I want to buy the girl in the photo...

  • mldi

    I think the one feature I personally want to see most is support for networked tuners, especially considering the future requirements for cable providers. But right now, I'd kill to have full integration with my HDHomeRun units.

    Really good hard work from LG. Also Google voice search
    features add plus point to Google TV.
