Everybody needs a cut of the web based real time video pie, and it appears to be that Google is the most recent to need to partake in the pattern. Apparently the organization is hoping to add free TV channels to Google TV, the Android-based shrewd TV stage that controls the Chromecast. It additionally controls some shrewd TVs from any semblance of Sony and TCL.
As indicated by the report from Protocol, Google has gone into chats with organizations appropriating free, promotion upheld streaming TV (FAST) channels.
