Google offers template, UI library for creating websites that look great on Google TV

In a bid to make we design for Google TV simpler, more uniform, and friendlier, Google announced today the availability of four new design templates; two based on Flash, and two that utilize open source technologies alone. The templates themselves are licensed under Apache 2, and can be modified and used accordingly. The result is a sort of turn-key web interface for sites dedicated entirely to television viewing or as a redirect for sites that want to be Google TV ( and living room) friendly. In order to ensure consistent navigation via the D-pad found on Google TV remotes, Google has released a corresponding UI library.

Google also has a guide for Google TV website optimization, but if you’re looking for a quick and elegant solution, these new templates should do the trick.
