Google has set up a new site for Google TV, with a "quick tour" spotlighting the features. Many of these were on display at the product announcement at Google I/O earlier this year, but it’s still nice to be able to look at the details in one place. 

Google also announced some new content partners, including HBO, Turner Broadcasting, and NBC Universal. The site says Google TV will come pre-loaded with apps for Netflix, Twitter, CNBC, Pandora, Napster, NBA Game Time, Amazon Video On Demand and Gallery. Apps from Android Market will start working on Google TV early next year. 

It uses  Chrome and Adobe Flash 10.1 to let you access web content. You can use either your Android phone or your iPhone as a remote control. This includes voice search and the ability to use multiple phones. You can also send videos from your phone to Google TV. All of the other features are discussed here

On the site, there is a spotlight section that will show sites that are being "tweaked and perfected" for the TV. In the "Why?" section of the site, Google says:

"Like Android, it will be an open software platform. From the start, it will be able to work with any TV. And before long, anyone will be able to build applications for it…"

"The coolest thing about Google TV is that we don’t even know what the coolest thing about it will be."

There are also sections on the new site for developers and how to get Google TV (complete with updates for when new products become available).
