Logitech unveils Revue, a $300 Google TV set-box
SEATTLE — Logitech is unveiling a $300 set-top box that will bring Google’s new TV service to people who don’t want to buy a new television set.
Logitech International SA, which makes computer mice, webcams and other peripherals, said in May it would build a Google TV set-top box.
Google Inc.’s Google TV aims to wed Web content with traditional TV programming. The service will include programs from Time Warner Inc.’s TBS, TNT, CNN and HBO and others, as well as Internet video services operated by Amazon.com Inc. and Netflix Inc.
The first Google TV sets from Sony Corp. are expected to go on sale later this month. Logitech says its devices will be on sale then, too.
Logitech is based in Switzerland.
