This all boils down to the fact that building a TV operating system using the same constraints and APIs as a smartphone operating system is seemingly always going to have an inherent disconnect. If Android TV is to succeed, it needs to ensure that devices released today will be supported for at least five years. That will prevent early adopters from shunning the platform in disappointment, as well as encourage later adopters to realize that Android TV is a worthwhile investment. – Mark Raby, SlashGear

  • Great article. For those who live outside US like me, you can access Netflix, Hulu and similar media stations on your Android/ Google TV by using UnoTelly or similar tools.
