International Google TV apps show up in preparation of global expansion?

Google TV has taken some time taking off, one of the main reasons being that it is focused on the US market. The company has plans on rolling out its smart TV services internationally within 2012. The exact date is unknown, but those looking for any clues should take the new Google TV international apps as good news.

The Search Giant has just released a flurry of international apps to bring US residents closer to their home countries. The list includes Asian channel PPTV, Yupp TV, Raaga and Crunchyroll. As well as Al Jazeera app (Arabic), IslamBox and Euronews.

Those that feel like they are missing out on their country’s content can now head straight to the Google Play Store and download these TV applications. But if you are out of the US, you will still have to wait a bit.

These international applications could be a good sign that Google is set to release Google TV internationally soon. It has already been stated that this is a plan slated for 2012. Release dates and markets are not yet announced, but we can expect major markets like Asia and Europe to be included.

For now, let’s stay tuned for more details. We might hear some good news regarding this matter during Google I/O. And if you are in the US, go ahead and enjoy your new apps.
