    We don't have an exact date but Google said today at Google IO conference that Google TV would get the App Market (along with Honeycomb 3.1 update) this summer.

    So much for the previous statement that it was coming Spring 2011.

    I found a bit of clarification from another article. Apparently the app market might hit sooner than the Android 3.1 update: "Google also announced that devs can start building apps for the platform using the normal honeycomb SDK and that Google Market should hit the platform 'soon'. Android 3.1 will hit Google TV this summer, but any changes were not announced" http://www.crunchgear.com/2011/05/10/google-tv-finds-new-friends-and-an-updated-os/

    I wish I could watch the keynote again and get the exact verbiage. Every time I find the keynote on Youtube it gets deleted rather quickly by Google. I suppose Google will eventually publish the video.

    Sparkyscott21, Thanks!

    I watched the keynote again and I watched the session on Google TV apps and it is pretty much confirmed that the market will not arrive before the 3.1 update.
