Google has announced a major update to the Google TV platform, introducing access to the Android Market, improved search, and a simpler user interface.
New TV and Movies section
From the released screenshots of the updated Google TV, the new interface certainly looks to be a big improvement on last year's Google TV experience. There's a new section called TV and Movies, which presents a browsing-friendly interface that combines content from your cable/satellite service, Netflix, Amazon.com, YouTube, and HBO Go.
Search is also said to be improved in the new Google TV and capable of searching through the same services available in the TV and Movies section. Google says search also does a better job of filtering out content providers that currently block Google TV from accessing their services, which was a major problem with the older software.
