Google’s Fiber internet and TV services are scarce to say the least, but that doesn’t mean the company isn’t working on making improvements to its platform before expanding it to bigger markets. The folks at Zatz Not Funny have uncovered a recent FCC filing for what appears to be a second-generation Fiber TV set-top box. While the listing is light on details, it does reveal that model number GFHD200 is loaded with connectivity options, including 802.11 ac/n WiFi, 10/100 Ethernet, MoCA, Bluetooth and HDMI 1.4.
Digging into the platform’s source code, reveals that a Bluetooth LE-connected remote referred to as the GFRM200 is also in development. While not much else is known about this new Fiber TV receiver, we’re pretty sure that Google will be leaning on the materials and talent that it acquired from SageTV to make its growing service a real contender.
