Google and Dish Network Test Set-Top Boxes

Mar 9, 2010  •  Post A Comment

Search engine giant Google "appears to be testing at least search functionality on a set-top box designed by DISH Network," according to PC Magazine.

PC Magazine references a Wall St. Journal article, which first reported the story March 8. [Note: WSJ content is firewall-protected and you could be asked to pay to see the story.]

Says PC Magazine: "The WSJ’s story, for all of its length, doesn’t really nail down several key details: are these boxes designed to surf the Web? Is the Google search simply a more robust method for finding existing and upcoming TV shows and pay-per-view content? Is the box actually using Google’s Android or Chrome OS? The latter point (with Android, at least) is implied, but not directly stated."
