Google Video is released as TV search service

Google released its TV search service on Monday. Google is currently beta testing the service and right now there is limited programming to search. Searching is available for some local ABC and NBS affiliates, PBS, C-SPAN, and Fox News. Interestingly, Google actually searches the closed captioning text of the TV programs in their databases. While Google searches TV, Yahoo takes a different approach and has a much wider variety of clips to search on any particular topic.

About Me


  1. Google Video Search is mediocre compared to other video search engines out there. If you want to partner anyone up with TiVo, I’d say go with BlinkxTV. They are connected to more channels, are easier to use and are more comprehensive as a search agent. Check it out at
