Google TV is based on Android but comes equipped with the Chrome browser so that users can readily access all websites on the Internet. However user experiences may not be optimal for generic websites originally intended for desktop users. It is highly recommended that developers design a "10-foot UI" that looks great and is easily navigable to fit the special requirements on Google TV. We have compiled a set of design and implementation tips, checklists, tools, templates, and libraries, articles and code samples, as well as optimized websites featured in Google TV Spotlight and demo gallery of websites submitted by fellow developers.
This guide consists of four sections below and it is a quick and easy way to get familiar with Google TV design, technical tips for web optimization, a short checklist, plus Flash guidelines.
Tools & Libraries
This section contains HTML5 and Flash versions of Google TV Templates, ideally suited for video contents, and the Google TV Web UI libraries, designed for fully interactive web apps.
This section contains articles and code samples for developing Google TV web apps. Additional resources are available on Stackoverflow.com for technical questions about Google TV, provided by Google TV Developer Relation team and community experts.
Spotlight & Gallery
This section covers Google TV Spotlight, which features web apps developed by partners, and Demo Gallery, which highlights web apps submitted by users. Both of them are curated by Google TV team.
