There are many smart TV platforms these days: the humble ones Roku, various Amazon Fire TV Devices, Samsung Tizen-based platform, screens with built-in Android TV, Nvidia Shieldand even the (relatively) new Chromecast with Google TV. Like that Android Police, we obviously care a little more about some of these platforms more than others. Given the apparent popularity of the new Chromecast among our readers, we’re curious to know how many of you are using an Android TV or a Google TV device.
For obvious reasons, we stream more than we have ever had now, but there are many ways to project these shows and movies into our eyeballs. Most of you probably read just those words on a phone, and it’s a handy (if small) screen to stream from. Tablets and PCs also get plenty of use with the benefit of a larger screen. But for many of us, television remains king, even though cable has gone like the dodo’s path.
Within Android TV, we have both the “inherited” version that goes by the same name, and Google’s new Google TV, which debuted on the self-titled Chromecast with Google TV. There are differences and some points of branding confusion – Google TV is a platform and an app, which the new name for Play Movies and TV, which you can watch on your Android TV – but deep down they both run Android, just with a slightly different (and converges slowly) se. TV with built-in Google TV is planned later this year from people like Sony and TCL, but none have been realized yet.
If you have a smart TV (or a box or dongle to make it smart), does it run Android TV?
