While Microsoft has somehow lost all interest to make its Media Center in Windows 8 a success, Google today announced it will expand the availability of its Google TV soon. Announced two years ago for the U.S. only and so far also everything but a success-story, Google TV brings "the best of Google and the Web" to TV. With Google TV, YouTube is available for the big screens (without the use of the cheaper HTC Media Link HD); Google Play offers thousands of mobile apps and hundreds optimized apps for TV and the Web is at your fingertips with Chrome. Starting today, Google TV devices will be available for pre-order in the U.K. and the U.S., from Google's partner Sony.

However, Google and Sony go even further and plan for 2012 to also launch the Internet Player with Google TV in Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Mexico and Netherlands.

The Sony NSZ-GS7 stand-alone Google TV 2.0 box will be available from July for US$ 199. The NSZ-GS9 with integrated Blu-ray player is expected to become available anytime October and will retail for US$ 299.

Cheers ~ Arne
