Common Questions about the Google TV DISH Network deal
How does it (Google TV) work? What is Google TV?
Google TV is accessed by your receiver through a small adapter called the Logitech Revue. This adapter connects you to the Internet seamlessly via WiFi. You get a special remote control, that has a keyboard and a mouse pad (called a touchpad) that allows you to browse the web on your TV. You can visit websites, search the web, install Apps just like an iPad or Andriod phone, search your programming guide, and a lot more. You can be viewing just the Internet, and no TV picture, or you can preserve your TV picture in a "picture in picture" (PiP) type of way so you don't miss anything on TV while you're browsing the Internet.
