Japan’s Matsushita Electric Industrial Co (Panasonic) has teamed up with Google and YouTube to commercialize flat panel television sets that allow users to access and view videos online and allow users to access YouTube and other Google services such as Picasa Web Albums.

The new TV will let users to do a variety of things like watch YouTube videos and look through photo albums just by using the remote. To do the same thing using today’s technology, your best bet would be to hook up a computer directly to the TV.

Without any extra hardware, it’s now a lot less complicated on network enabled televisions. This effectively removes the barrier that was stopping average users from accessing web content, that makes sense, through their TV.

The Internet-enabled plasma TVs are expected to hit store shelves in the US this spring.
