TV3 – Televisió de Catalunya is the first Spanish TV station to go on Google TV.
With the release of the TV3 app for Google TV, viewers can watch thousands of videos on demand, as well as live broadcasts of the channel.
The service is similar to what TV3 already offers through other Smart TVs (Sony, Philips, LG, Sharp) and other platforms such as the Sony PS3 console, Windows Media Center, the TiVo service from ONO, the InOut TV receiver and mobile devices.
This boost in TV3 content on the Google audiovisual platform is being carried out to coincide with the closure of satellite broadcasts of the channel TV3CAT due to cost-cutting measures
Currently, Google TV is available in the US. Catalans and other interested people living in the US now have immediate access to the channel and its VOD library.
TV3, based in Barcelona, is the television company of the Catalan Broadcasting Corporation (CCMA). It was founded in 1983 with the mission of “restoring the Catalan language and culture to their rightful place.”
