If any Infobae reader has a television with google tvthe entertainment platform of Googleyou must already know that you are one of the most useful systems for finding new content in all yearsstreaming servicesWhat Netflix either Prime Video.

But there is one type of content that is still outside the scope of the platform, at least for the time being: traditional television. It’s easy to forget that millions of people are still enjoying “normal” TV, no matter how big the streaming platforms grow.

Now, it is known that the channels of Google TV are just around the corner, at least in the United States, where some of the first free channels that will come to Google TV have been leaked.

Television on Google TV

As 9to5Google discovered, users will soon be able to watch traditional TV channels on GoogleTV, at least initially in the US. Details were discovered in the bowels of the latest version of Android TV (where Google TV is the successor/redesign, it’s as complicated as ever at Google).

It was important for users to mention the presence of TV channels, directly accessible through the Google TV interface. Initially, 50 channels will be accessible for free without registration.

In fact, users won’t even need to subscribe to anything or download any additional software, so the channels will appear as one more option in the TV interface.

Since the feature will initially roll out in the US, it’s no surprise that the first channels available are from that country; there are many channels, from news channels to channels dedicated to specific audiences like kids and specific content like movies or sports. In the list are recognizable names like ABC, CBC, NBC, Kevin Hart, USA Today, World Poker Tour and The Asylum.

Google won’t be the first to offer live TV on its interface, and other brands like Samsung already allow access to hundreds of channels directly from the home screen and over the Internet without an antenna or cable connection.

It will be interesting if Google manages to expand this list, as well as if it will start offering the service to other countries. Regarding the issue of rights, it is a bit more complicated, since Google will have to negotiate with the Spanish channels so that their content is available on all of Google TV.
