Eric Schmidt made the announcement at the closing keynote for the IFA convention in Germany today, saying that while they "will work with content providers," it is "very unlikely that we will get into actual content production."

It's also thought that the Korean giants LG and Samsung are also interested in Google TV. [Reuters]

internet lines are gonna destroy all other information and media infrastructures.
