Google TV rebranded Nexus TV?

Google is planning to rebrand its television offering under the Nexus name – at least according to a report in The Information.

 

The search engine giant is currently understood to be planning a major reboot for the Android-powered service. The web-enabled television box has been stuck in development limbo for months now.

The report, published on Friday (subscription required), claims that Google is looking to position the television service alongside its popular smartphone and tablet range.

Google is believed to be preparing to launch the service in the first half of 2014. Android chief Sundar Pichai has previous said that there will be a Google TV-related announcement at next year’s Consumer Electronics Show.

The company refused to comment on the story.

Previously, the company referred to its proposed web television service as Android TV.

It is likely that Google will be keen to get its own web-enabled television box out of the door as soon as possible.

Apple has had limited success with pushing its Apple TV box into the market. It is currently rumoured to be developing a television set with smart functionality built in.
