    Amazon has several productivity apps for FREE today, one of which is PrinterShare Mobile Print and it listed NSZ-GT1 as being compatible. I have not tested it yet.

    Print documents (DOC, DOCX, XLS, XSLX, PPT, PPTX, PDF, TXT) from your smartphone's SD card and from Google Docs. Also print email from Gmail, photos from the SD card, contacts, agendas, SMS or MMS, call logs, and even web pages directly from your device to a printer right next to you or anywhere in the world.

    It installed easy enough but I can't get it to print to local Wi-Fi printers. I have had the free version installed for a while and print to Google Cloud printers, that version finds the local Wi-Fi printers but requests I purchase a premium key. I will troubleshoot and see what I can do but so far it doesn't work for me.

    From the PrinterShare web site here is the list of officially supported printers for android phones. (They don't have Google TV mentioned as a supported device on their list):

    PrinterShare® - Supported Printers

    Also on the following thread "CDuke" posted on 2/27/12 that he emailed the PrinterShare dev and the dev told him that PrinterShare wasn't compatible with GTV - but that they were working on it. That was over a year ago so hopefully it works now:

    I only had to reboot Google TV, it then found my three network printers, a Brother HL-2270DW, an Epson NX510 and an HP Photosmart C7280. I printed a GMail email to the Brother laser printer but haven't tested anything further.

    Are you able to print without connecting to an intermediate PC?

    Yes, directly to Wi-Fi printer. I have only tried one of three printers I have.

    From mrspock's link I also installed the Wi-Fi File Explorer Pro, it is compatible with Google TV. I don't how to use it but thought I would grab it today and worry about that later.

    I have had the Amazon App Store installed for some time but haven't installed more than a couple of apps for Google TV during that time, today, it became important to me so I need to check the store more often.

    We need a thread called Project Free Apps! I'm sure it would surpass the quarter-million hits that the Project Free TV thread has.

    Surely, PrinterShare isn't the only good app for printing.
