Google Acquires SageTV

Google has made their latest purchase, this time acquiring SageTV for an undisclosed fee.

Software company SageTV’s product allows TV shows to be watched and recorded from any computer with a high-speed internet connection.

The message on their homepage mentions “By teaming up with Google, we believe our ideas will reach an even larger audience of users worldwide on many different products, platforms and services”.

Presumably now, SaveTV will be integrated into Google TV.

  1. Well this is certainly an interesting acquisition and I would agree with your point of the service integrating with Google TV as they try to establish their presence in another online sector.

    Not entirely clued up on the technology itself and specifically what SageTV have to offer but back in March it was announced that Alan Sugar joined the BBC-led ‘YouView’ as the non-executive chairman, to develop the internet TV portal. This is scheduled to launch early 2012.

    With things hotting up here, it should certainly be an interesting year ahead to see if internet TV really takes off..
