Meanwhile, Google is continuing a very limited test of a television search service with Dish Network Corp, according to people familiar with the matter. The service, which uses the new Google technology, allows users to access and search across programming from the Internet as well as Dish’s conventional programming, these people said. The test, which began last year, is still limited to a very small number of the company’s employees and their families.
