We have seen some great demo’s of the Google TV and honestly I could not be more excited. As an independent content creator / podcaster, the potential upside audience growth potential is unlike anything brought to market yet. The dedicated podcast section is going to grow viewer / listener counts in a big way. There will be come challenges, Bandwidth costs from Google TV audience growth is going to be a concern. The cost to deliver media is not a issue so long as advertising dollar spends keep pace with the listener viewer ramp up.
In the latest demo of Google TV we saw the Netflix and Pandora apps but no others? At what point is Google going to open up the development doors so companies like mine (RawVoice) can start coding our apps to be ready for the introduction of Google TV?
If anyone has a contact at Google that I can reach out to please let me know, my team is ready to move forward with Google TV app development in a big way. With our successful channel apps deployments in both Roku, Boxee and anticipated apps on the Vudu box along with some platforms we are under NDA on. We know the importance of being on the Google TV, and want to be their as close to launch as possible.
Google if your listening, my team is ready to build media apps for the platform you can reach me at firstname.lastname@example.org. While I know on your website that you will not be ready until 2011.. Were ready now!
So are you as excited about Google TV as we are. We know it is going to be a home run of epic proportions and cannot wait for the platform launch.
