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.

Tom currently works in developer relations for IBM Watson. A serial entrepreneur, he's been the founder of numerous startups including Investify and StatsMix, a Techstars alumni company. Tom lives outside Boulder, Colorado and in his free time he's an avid rock climber, skier, and trail runner.
