HOLLYWOOD, CA (Gosh!TV) 2014/6/2 – “Google has at least one thing going for Android TV,” says media analyst Janko Roettgers. “There aren’t a whole lot of good alternatives. Roku, Opera and a few others all are trying to establish their TV platforms as de-facto industry standards, but none of them have jaw-dropping features that would help a TV manufacturer to compete with the likes of Samsung and LG.”

Google is expected to announce Android TV at Google I/O in June, as a platform powered by Pano and focused on gaming. Early adopters are anticipated to be Netflix and Hulu.
