It is fairly safe at this point to call Google TV
a failed experiment. Google
secured several partners for the service and dozens of Google TV-powered set-top boxes and smart TVs have launched over the years — but consumers never really cared. At all. One early Google TV partner went as far as to call the decision to build a Google TV box a mistake that cost the company dearly
. It shouldn’t come as much of a surprise then, that Google has reportedly made the decision to call it quits with Google TV and launch a somewhat fresh new TV platform in its place.
