It is not necessary to purchase both, they have the same Google feature. Only difference is that the Bluray Player obviously plays the Bluray movies, but the web search options are the same.

The Google Internet TV feature on TV and Blu-ray player works the same way. The Internet Blu-ray player is not required with the Internet Television. You can just purchase a regular Blu-ray player.

You don't run it through the blu ray player. Run it through the TV. the Sony system is made to surf the net & watch movies, etc. off of the net.

The remote controls the Sony device, your TV, and your DVR/Cable/Satellite box.

You will be able to put your Verizon remote control in storage, along with your Panasonic plasma TV (or any other TV) remote control. The all-in-one remote control that comes with this device will replace all of those remotes.

By the way, my living room TV that has this Sony device connected is also a 3-4 year old Panasonic plasma TV (42"). They work together wonderfully!

Question

Is a cable box necessary?

I am subscribed to cable but I do not have the cable box. Can I just connect the Sony Wi-Fi Built-In Blu-ray Disc Player with Google TV to my HDTV in order to watch tv and surf the web, or do I actually need a cable box.

Hook a coax cable from the wall to your TV and have TV complete a channel search. You should pick up some local channels, if anything. Google TV won't help out very much with that, as there is no coax connection, available.

Google TV will allow you to surf the web, but some sites are blocked. I like Netflix and watch most shows, there.

The NSZGT1 does not have a Television Tuner, what it does is output to your Television via HDMI. Your cable transmission would go from the wall or cable box directly to the TV. you can however command your TV from the NSZGT1 and switch from TV, to the internet at the touch of a button, or both at the same time!

Question

Is the "google TV" software the same and has the same features as that on the Logitech Revue?

Before this week's heralded, major Google TV software update, the software on this Sony device and the Logitech Revue was almost exactly the same.

One major difference on this device is the beautiful integration of the Blu-Ray/DVD disc player. For example:

When using a Logitech Revue, if you have a Blu Ray or DVD player, you have to set down the Logitech remote, pick up your TV's remote, switch input to your Blu-Ray/DVD player, set down your TV remote, pick up your Blu Ray/DVD player's remote, watch the movie, pick up your TV's remote, switch back to Google TV as the input, set down your TV's remote, pick up your Logitech remote, and go back to using Google TV.

With this Sony device, you simply insert a disc into the player and it automatically switches over to playing the disc. To return to Google TV or regular TV, just use the "Home" button on the Sony remote. I'm really happy to have been able to put *all* my other remotes away and just use this one very functional all-in-one remote.

Since the major Google TV software update, only Sony devices have it so far. Google says the Logitech update is coming "soon". So, for this current, hopefully brief moment in time, the Sony device has much more advanced software than the Logitech Revue.

Google TV delivers a new experience by bringing the TV and internet together. Using your existing cable or satellite service and at no additional cost, Google TV gives you access to more entertainment options and simplifies the process of finding what you’re looking. Plus, you can enjoy both TV and web content at the same time, on the same screen. To see more cool features of the Internet Television, please visit Sony’s eSupport website.
