South Korea-based LG Electronics is reportedly planning to give Google TV another try in the U.S. -- possibly as soon as this month.
According to Reuters, Ro Seogho, executive vice president of LG's TV business unit, told reporters in Seoul on Monday that U.S. consumers will be able to buy the TV based on Google's platform beginning the week of May 21.
LG's current Google TV offering in the LG G3 series, has received lukewarm reviews and hasn't caught on with consumers. And while Google hopes Google TV will do for the TV market what Android did for the mobile market, it's been plagued with problems like high prices, low sales, and difficulty with program distribution.
Features of Google TV include being able to use a smartphone as a remote control, searching the Internet on the TV while watching a show, and creating a home page with app launch icons and TV channels.
