Now browse the internet, your TV and previously recorded shows by typing in what you want to watch and start watching it immediately. But that is not all. Google TV comes with pre-installed apps like Neflix*, NBA, Pandora, Twitter and Napster. Video calling? Absolutely. Add a webcam to the mix and you’re all set.
