Google TV gets international TV, content apps

Google on Friday detailed some new apps that are aimed at Google TV platform users of various ethnic backgrounds. Through them, users can access TV and other content from various countries and regions. Some of the apps include Al Jazeera, Euronews, and IslamBox.

Most of the apps offer content in multiple languages and with subtitles. Some content is even available in high definition and is split between live news, TV shows, and video-on-demand offerings. Crunchyroll, for example, offers episodes of Japanese anime and Asian Drama just one hour after they first air in Japan.

The Google TV hardware isn't yet available outside of the US, however. An announcement of an international launch may come at the Google I/O conference scheduled for late June.
