DISH now offering Google TV to subscribers


DISH Network announced that DISH Network’s Google TV solution is now available to customers. By combining search capabilities and the variety of content on the web with DISH Network’s onscreen programming data, DVR and VOD content, DISH Network claims the most advanced integration of Google TV on the market.

“Only DISH Network customers will have access to the most fully-featured Google TV experience available, which includes our unique pairing protocol for simultaneous search capabilities across Web and DVR content, as well as DISH Network’s VOD programming,” said DISH Network Chief Marketing Officer Ira Bahr. “Customers can now surf the Web, check email, interact with social media, and find additional online television content all from the comfort of their living room sofa.”

DISH Network’s Google TV solution, which requires a DVR integration service of $4 per month, includes the Logitech Revue with Google TV, a small set-top box available for a special price of $179 exclusively for DISH Network customers. The Google TV experience is compatible with DISH Network ViP series HD DVR satellite TV receivers including the ViP 622, ViP 722 and ViP 722k.

DISH Network also makes its enhanced Google TV experience available to customers who purchase a Logitech Revue or Sony Internet TV powered by Google TV from retail outlets.
