Android TV

As a main operating system for set-top boxes, Android TV is continuing to expand at a quick pace by delivering an array of services and user experience.
Humax also applies Android TV solutions to various products and services to satisfy its customers’ needs.

What is Android TV?

A smart entertainment platform, Android TV is the TV operating system that Google developed in-house for digital media players. It was first announced in June 2014 as the successor to Google TV.
An Android TV device is sort of a set-top box or smart TV that runs the Android TV operating system. Through Android TV, users access a variety of digital media player platforms, on-demand video apps, and network TV shows. Unlike Google TV, it features a user interface designed around content discovery and voice search, surfacing content aggregated from various media apps and services.
