Google says it will soon add live TV listings to its search engine, allowing web users to find out when their favorite shows or movies will be airing. But in a nod to the many non-traditional ways that consumers watch TV today, the company says that it will also display the apps and websites where you can view the show’s latest episode.

According to Google’s blog post, the big improvement is that, in addition to pointing to streaming services and apps, it will now also display air times and channels where you can watch. An “Edit provider” link will allow you to customize this option to inform Google of your cable provider, if applicable.
