Google in talks with Apple over iTV?

Share

  According to a report in Newsweek, Google is in talks with Apple with regards to supplying video clips for Apple’s soon-to-launch iTV service.

iTV was unveiled by Apple last week’s press conference as a solution for watching your downloaded movies and video clips on your TV – streaming the video via wireless technology. Talks between Google and Apple could result in access for iTV users to thousands of videos submitted to Google video via a simple menu item, with other menus offering access to movie trailers.

It all sounds like a nice add-on, but it’s still not clear when the service will see a UK launch (the US is earmarked for early 2007) or indeed if they dare stick with that name over here. Hopefully both matters will be cleared up in the coming weeks.
