Next step for Google:

Google launches TV show search engine (http://www.pcworld.com/news/article/0,aid,119421,tk,dn012505X,00.asp).


Web search giant Google is bringing television content to users via its video search engine, Google Video, which was launched by the company on Tuesday.

Google has indexed video and complete transcripts of thousands of TV shows, which users will be able to search using the service. A search for a phrase will return an excerpt of a matching program transcript and a still TV image of exactly when the phrase was spoken, says John Piscitello, a product manager at Google.

What next?

Great, a search engine that searches nothing. :wink:

How do you access it and what does it cost?

The link is also present in the article I linked, and it talks about the capabilities of this new search feature.
