Today, @Google announced new updates to their TV & Movies app supported on our Sony Internet TV products, that includes personalized choices across all your content options in an new easy layout. Google also announced features that keep you in the loop on the happenings of your favorite channels, even with reminders on stuff you’ve been meaning to watch. A special shout out to our pal, Google TV blog author and Google TV Product Manager, Greg Funk, for giving us the inside scoop. Below are a couple of key highlights.
More info makes it easier to decide
Google expanded the info below every TV show, movie, sports game, and any other program so you can more easily decide what to watch. They also added a nifty menu if you want to dig into the details, rate a title 1-5 stars, tell the app you’re not interested or add it to your favorites. Now you no longer need to wonder if you’re watching the latest episode of SGNL by Sony and you can rate our show. We’re curious to know what you think.
Find your favorites faster
Google also added a couple of cool apps directly onto their Favorite Channel so you’ll instantly see what show is currently playing on each. Not to worry. You can also add all your favorite channels to the “Favorites” and you’ll have a one-stop personalized guide of just the channels you care about. You can also add favorite TV shows and movies to your queue so you can come back later and watch them on sites like HBO GO, SGNL by Sony, Netflix and more.
Tuned to your taste
When you open the new version of TV & Movies for the first time, you’ll be asked to login and rate a series of movies and TV shows. They are going to use this kind of feedback to give you recommendations tailored to your taste. And lastly, if you’ve finished watching all your shows and want something new, be sure to check out the new Trending This Week shelf in Shows. These shows are trending on the web based on what’s being seen on Google search, and it’s updated every day so you never miss out.
So that’s the update. It’s a pretty impressive view of how Google is continuing to make the Google TV experience better and better on the platform and the benefit of owning a Sony Internet TV product is that we get to take advantage of these updates as they are released.
