There are many reasons why Google TV hasn’t grown to the extent we were expecting. Software and content is not impressive, to say the least. But another important issue is the fact that Google TV has only been available in the US… until now.
No, not every country is jumping in just yet. The UK is now able to pre-order Sony’s new set-top Google TV box, though. This marks the beginning of Google TV’s venture outside of the US, after a long 2 years since the platform’s release.
If you are not from the UK, you will just have to sit tight and wait for your turn. But cheer up, as your country might be getting blessed by Sony soon enough. Sony also plans to bring Google TV to other countries during 2012, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and the Netherlands.
With such major markets being added to the list, Google TV’s luck just might be turning to the brighter side. Especially if Google decides to surprise us with some good improvements and announcements at Google IO, this week. We will definitely be there to get all the news for you, so stay tuned!
As for all of our UK readers, you can go ahead and pre-order your Sony Google TV Box here. Are you signing up for this one?
