Google is reportedly testing a new TV search service, jointly with Dish Network Corp.

Google and the satellite TV operator Dish Network Corp are reportedly testing TV programming based search service.

This service uses the Android wireless operating system on TV set-top boxes, and will allow users to search for programs on both satellite TV, and videos from websites such as YouTube. The Wall Street Journal also reports that Google plans to link this search service to its new TV ad-brokering service, which will help them target ads to individual homes based on customer data.
