Are you a second screen, multiple screen type of TV viewer?
Time to fess up. I am, and since you know I have no shame, I might as well be the first to step up and admit it.
I need my smart TV!
Used to be I was smarter than my TV, or at least that’s my story and I’m going to stick to it. Even when TV became smart, I was smarter.
The Sony Internet Player with Google TV™ (NSZ-GS7) makes most any TV the smartest of smart TVs. With me, I get all my regular TV programming from my cable provider – yea, whoopee! – but, I also get full access to the Internet with a full-on Google Chrome™ browser and the Google Play™ store chock full of apps.
The coolest part? Today marks the launch of a software update for Google TV™. With the “PrimeTime” app and its new user interface, it’s now easier than ever to find the content you’re looking for. Also, the Google Play store has added Amazon Video on Demand, and the new YouTube® app allows you to easily play videos on your TV.
The second coolest part? One remote. New today is voice-activated commands with the optional Google TV remote, the Sony NSG-MR7U. Working seamlessly with the latest software update, your search is as simple as barking a few commands into your remote. Of course, Sony’s Google TV remote has always had a backlit QWERTY keyboard on one side, and a big touchpad on the other, featuring the ability to “pinch and pull” to resize web pages, just like we do with our smart phones.
The third coolest part? Dudes, we’re talking one screen, one device, freeing me up for snuggle time with Lola, the family dog. With a dual view, I can have programming up in one screen – in my case, a nice comfortable 55” – and the fruits of my web search on the other, be it a Twitter feed, a web site related to the show I’m watching, or real-time results of my Fantasy hockey team.
Okay, a quick recap: Two views on one screen, full access to the Internet, all on one device with one remote, one keyboard and even the ability to do voice search. Did I miss anything, other than an app to make Adam Sandler movies funny again? [Note to self: Call engineering and see if they can whip something up.]
