Google

(GOOG) - Get Free Report

has asked TV makers to delay their introductions of sets featuring new software so it can make refinements, the

New York Times

reports, citing people familiar with the company's plans.

The new software, which adds Web video and other computer smarts to TV sets, has received a lukewarm reception, the

Times

reports.

Google already has a deal with

Sony

undefined

for its Internet TVs. But other TV makers such as

Toshiba

,

LG Electronics

and

Sharp

were expected to unveil their versions of the systems at next month's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. The late request from Google caught some TV makers off guard, the

Times

notes.

Samsung

now appears set to be the only new entrant to the Google TV market at the show, the

Times

reports, citing people familiar with the company's plan.
