Android TV – Need of the hour for Video Service Providers

There are substantial customer engagement and monetization opportunity for operators by broadening their service offerings to include games, apps, and OTT content on TVs.

AndroidTV brings in the right ecosystem with access to Google Play store and thousands of ready applications.
