Far from official the tipped LG Nexus Google TV is expected to be launched in reaction to the much mooted Apple iTV release which has been repeatedly rumoured to be heading to market ahead of this year’s Christmas period with an all new iTunes based content platform.

“Google has said it plans to introduce the third version of its namesake TV service by the end of this year, with more content and easier functions to find shows,” insider sources speaking with Bloomberg have said. “It is considering giving LG Electronics first access to the next version of its Google TV software so the Korean company can build a compatible set.”
