Google Buys SageTV
Engadget reports that Google is buying SageTV. This is huge news! If I didn’t have Windows Media Center I’d be looking seriously at SageTV. Sage already has set-top box hardware for extending content from PC to the TV. Google could use that or leverage that into what they are already offering in their Google TV products.
I don’t think many of us who follow this space saw this coming. Michael Welter, over on Missing Remote, posted the email that users received.
Will I switch? Well, that remains to be seen. Really curious where Google will take this. Also still curious where Microsoft will go with Media Center in Windows 8. No matter what, it is an exciting space to watch!
