    Default Just got an email from Google regarding Google TV upgrade.

    Hello,

    Thank you for having purchased a Google TV product with the initial version of our software.

    Were excited to send you this advance notice about a number of software improvements that will soon be coming to your device through an automatic update. The update is rolling out over the next few weeks.

    When you see a dialogue box on your TV saying update available, feel free to click update now, otherwise you can postpone the update by a few hours by clicking not now (handy if youre in the middle of watching a movie). Once the update has downloaded, just follow the on-screen instructions.

    The on-screen instructions include a quick guide to whats new, but heres an overview of the exciting new features were bringing you:

    Keep it simple

    The interface is now much simpler. The new customizable home screen gets you to your favorite content quickly. And within all apps you can see all of your shortcuts, similar to your Android phone or tablet.


    Make it easy to find something worth watching

    Weve improved search across the board for content from live TV, Netflix, YouTube, HBO GO, and more. But what if you dont know what to search for? Theres now an app called TV & Movies that lets you easily browse through 80,000 movies and TV episodes across cable or satellite, Netflix, Amazon, YouTube, and many other sites. If youve opted in to recommendations, we can better predict what you want to watch next.


    Make YouTube better on TV

    Were launching a new YouTube experience specifically built for Google TV. It is now fast and easy to get to your favorite HD-quality YouTube entertainment. And weve integrated YouTube more closely with Google TV search, so that you can turn virtually any topic mountain biking, cooking, etc. into a channel.


    Bring more apps to TV

    We are opening up the TV to the creativity of content creators large and small through Android Market. Android developers can now bring existing mobile apps or entirely new ones to TV. Initially, the number of apps wont be large for example, apps requiring a touch screen, GPS, or telephony wont show up but 50 developers have seeded the Market with some cool and useful apps for the TV. Were excited to see the number of apps grow.

    The email said, "The update is rolling out over the next few weeks." I wonder if we can force the update?
