Google TV could make its way to UK shores within the next six months, the Telegraph has reported.

According to the newspaper, Google TV, for the UK will be announced by Google's executive chairman Eric Schmidt during this year's MacTaggart lecture at the Edinburgh Television Festival.

The service will let you watch content from catch-up services such as iPlayer and other web video services like YouTube on your TV. It uses the Android operating system and content is accessed via the Chrome browser.

Android phones will be the remote controls for the service, and it'll run through set-top boxes that will be available in the UK within the next six months, it is claimed.
