Google TV handles Roku with over 800 free TV networks

Google TV is ending up being more such as basic cable television. The company announced today it is including content from several new service companies to earn browsing ad-supported live TV networks a main component of the system. The information comes several months after the company was apparently negotiating with media companies to include comparable content to YouTube.

Beginning today, Google TV is including Free Ad-Supported Streaming Tv (FAST) networks from Tubi, Plex and Haystack Information to its current FAST content from Pluto TV. Additionally, Google is including "integrated networks from Google TV that you could watch without also downloading and install or launching an application." The company says the solution currently aggregates over 800 free networks.

FAST is the industry call for ad-supported "linear streaming content," meaning it is broadcast at specific times such as traditional tv. (Think standard mid-day programming on TNT or TBS.) Currently accepted by rivals such as Roku, FAST networks transform streaming right into an experience akin to channel-surfing in the old days — further showing that live TV streaming has basically become cable television sent out through a various pipeline.

Google says the content will consist of shows such as Westworld (which Detector Brothers. Exploration removed from HBO Max), Legislation & Purchase: SVU and The Strolling Dead. Furthermore, it consists of information content from NBC, ABC, Fox and CBS. It also has worldwide programming in greater than 10 languages, consisting of Spanish, Hindi and Japanese. Additionally, the programming is organized in an upgraded TV guide, which Google says makes browsing much faster and easier. The Google TV Live tab will also consist of content from YouTube TV or Sling TV (if you subscribe), placing all your live TV content in one spot.

Although the Google TV changes show up beginning today, the company says it will roll it out "over the coming weeks," (a Google classic) so you might need to delay a little bit before attempting it. First, of course, you will need a Google TV device such as Chromecast with Google TV or a tv from Sony, TCL, Hisense and Philips with Google TV integrated. The company says the feature will trickle to Android TV devices later on this year.
