Google to Debut Video Search

Google announced yesterday that the company is currently testing a prototype serviced used to search TV programming.

The engine dubbed "Google Video" allows users to search across text from TV shows like Fox News and ABC News. Google started indexing TV shows in late December aiming to compete with various other TV search providers.

"Now users can search the content of thousands of TV programs, find the shows that have the information they're looking for, and learn when they can watch them," Google co-founder Larry Page said in a statement.

Currently, providers of TV search like Yahoo and Blinkx TV are said to be stepping up their technology after the Google announcement.
