Google TV coming to the Netherlands in 2012

Hey! Netherlands! Guess what? You’re getting Google TV!

Google will launch its TV service in Europe early next year, Executive Chairman Eric Schmidt said.

“Just as smartphones sparked innovation in the internet,” Schmidt said, “we think that Google TV can spark that same kind of innovation in television.”

Google TV, which allows viewers to mix Web and television content on a TV screen via a browser, was launched in the United States in October but received mixed reviews and was swiftly blocked by three of the top US broadcast networks.

The Telegraph reports that Eric Schmidt will outline the release plans during his MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festive.
