Google TV to be replaced by 'Android TV'? According to a report, Google is set to drop the, 'Google TV' brand and switch to 'Android TV' instead.
The report comes from GigaOm, citing a source that said Google intends to phase out Google TV but a re-branded Android TV will follow. Of course, Google TV is already based on Android anyway.

Google seems to be experimenting with its living room efforts, having launched the Chromecast dongle to beam content from a variety of compatible devices and services directly to TV over a network.

Google TV has been waiting for an update for some time now, so its likely that the re-branding will come with it.
