Google is set to take over your TV with its Google TV service, announced at the Google I/O event today.

It will add search and web functionality to TVs, allowing users to browse through TV guides and recorded programmes quickly, as well as access websites, online video and more.

It will run on the Android operating system and web browsing will of course be taken care of by its Chrome browser.

Teaming up with Sony and Logitech to build Google TV sets and set-top boxes, the new service and hardware will be launching in the states in the autumn.
