Android TV is a smart TV operating system based on Android and developed by Google for television sets, digital media players, set-top boxes, and soundbars.
Android TV: The humble television is extremely well-loved in the Indian household. It has the power to bring generations of families together. However, the content that we see on cable TV has long become repetitive and boring. As a result, people are no longer watching it. Instead, they have shifted to their personal devices for getting their share of entertainment.
People are now using laptops and their smartphones to watch OTT content. Therefore, the TV often ends up being unused. However, if you have a smart TV, you change this very easily. Smart TVs are able to show OTT channels, with the highest quality resolution and vivid imagery.
