Android TV

Development, Porting and Integration Services

Android TV is Google’s operating system for connected TVs and set-top boxes. It is a well-adopted platform that offers versatility for operators to easily deliver rich, interactive content and streaming services directly to consumers and subscribers.

Over 170 hybrid broadcast and OTT operators have chosen Android TV to deliver their video services because it provides a ​feature-rich, turn-key solution to deliver a huge number of OTT services (VOD/SVOD/AVOD) and apps, alongside broadcast content. ​

But… some challenges and constraints come with this versatility. Are you struggling with any of the following?

  • OS consideration ​as part of product roadmap planning
  • Platform or application porting to new hardware or OS versions
  • Performance or security requirements or issues
  • Custom ​requirements ​- integrating bespoke UX and services
  • Platform stability ​and performance – measurements and optimisation
  • Android OS version upgrade management and recertification
  • Maintaining your device estate ​and extending device lifespan

Operators need to quickly launch their performant product, which is highly integrated with their custom UI.

Knowing how to customise Android TV “the right way” is key to avoiding future problems.
