    Google launches smart TV service

    Search giant Google has launched a TV service that unites live television with the web.

    The "smart TV" service allows people to search both live channels as well as content from websites such as YouTube.

    Special TV sets - or normal TVs connected to a Google box - will also allow people to access the web and download applications.

    The first TV sets will be produced by Sony and should be available in the Autumn.

    "Video should be consumed on the biggest, brightest, best screen in your house - the television," said Rishi Chandra of the firm. "That's not the PC, or mobile."

    He said that there were currently 4bn TV users worldwide and that around $70bn (£50bn) was spent annually on adverts in the US alone.

    "There is no better medium to reach a wider and broader audience than TV," he said.
