Google is testing a new TV search service with Dish Network, the no. 2 U.S. satellite TV provider, the WSJ reports.
The service lets you search TV shows and Web video, including YouTube videos, the WSJ's Jessica Vascellaro reports. The service runs on set-top boxes "using elements of Google's Android operating system," and is currently being tested by Google employees and their families, according to the WSJ.
Meanwhile several tv schedule sites give me the same thing.

Google is privately testing a television set-top box that lets users search satellite TV programming as well as video websites like its very own YouTube, according to a new report.
Citing "people familiar with the matter," The Wall Street Journal reports that Mountain View is testing this Google-software-powered set-top box in tandem with satellite TV provider Dish Network and that the tests are limited to a small number of Google employees and their families.
