"The idea was good: Google TV provided a single interface and universal search for accessing both cable or satellite TV as well as a wide array of online video services — not only Netflix and Amazon, but anything that could be viewed online. "
people already have this capability with their game console or roku box....and now the chromecast.
"Google is likely to update the OS to its latest version, making it easier for developers to write apps for it."
this seems like oversaturation to me. we have consoles (including the up coming steambox), even the chromecast (which will have its own apps eventually), roku, ouya, smartphones, tablets, laptops and computers to run apps. what can using android with a TV remote offer consumers that we don't already have?
"Android could make it a lot easier and more appealing for creative app programmers to come up with better ideas for how to organize video and use a TV than any one company can"

AnyThing, AnyTime, AnyWhere. The "writing" is on thwe wall. Internet WILL be the dominant delivery platform for Entertainment, Education, Health Care; you name it. That Google hasn't taken a longer view of Android's potential in the unified marketplace is disappointing. Here's hoping that they will understand that structuring the right platform and open-sourcing the software will give them the best chance of dominating the infrastructure. Content? Well, that's another story. Straddling the fence between Content and Infrastructure-the pipeline-will only last until the FCC and FTC recognize the relity of the marketplace, and force the separation of Content and Infrastructure.
