Sony Slashes Google TV Prices

Sony and Best Buy have slashed the price for devices running Google TV, weeks after the service was launched to much fanfare.

The platform, which is available through Logitech's Revue set-top-box and Sony's Internet TVs, has failed to take off owing to its high price and lack of exclusive content.

The Japanese consumer electronics giant has cut the price of Google TV enabled Blu-Ray player by $100, dropping it to $299. Best Buy is also offering Sony's Goolge TV enabled devices at the discounted prices. The Logitech Revue, however, is still only available for the full price..

Sony has also reduced the price for its Internet TV line-up that comes embedded with the Google platform. Google TV enabled internet sets are now available for $600 for the 24-inch LCD TV, while the 32-inch and 40-inch models will be available for $800 and $900 respectively. Meanwhile, the 46-inch model is retailing at a huge $1,200. The discounts are to run until 29 November.
