Sony NSZ-GS8 Google TV rumored

Sony NSZ-GS8 Google TV in the making


The Sony NSZ-GS7 Google TV set-top box continues to be one of the top devices of its kind. The remote is outstanding and it brings Google TV at its best. It is arguably Sony’s most successful Google TV, so it only makes sense that the company would try to make a successor. Evidence of such a device has emerged: a said NSZ-GS8 device has just received WiFi certification.

Details are scarce aside from the name and the fact that it should support 2.4 Ghz WiFi 802.11 b/g/n and the usual WiFi security protocols. More details should come in due time, though, so let’s stay tuned for this one!

    no 5ghz so no miracast….GTV needs miracast as a way to beat airplay.

    Yes I know DLNA and such is possible and “flinging” cloud sources material (netflix, youtube,play) is there, but screen mirroring, especially for gaming, makes so much sense.

      You are 100% right! It’s the only reason why I have an Apple TV, really. I can mirror my Mac’s screen directly to the TV. For everything else I use my Google TV.

    I am hoping for some goof news about Goole TV from Google I/O in a few weeks. Holding off on any purchase until then,
