Sony commits to Android TV for their smart TV needs
Didn’t we tell you it wasn’t all bad news for Android TV earlier? After LG and Samsung made the decision to go with their own respective platforms for smart TV, Sony announced during their CES 2015 press conference that their Smart Bravia TV lineup will proudly use Android TV to help folks get to the content they want or need when they want or need it.
Sony won’t be doing much with the platform in terms of customization, of course — they’ll leave the development and evolution of the platform up to Google, which is very good news for those who want to ensure they’ll always be in line for the latest updates Google’s sure to deliver over time.
Despite the company struggling to turn around profit bleeding caused by the television division, Sony remains one of the top contenders in the TV business and we’re sure Google couldn’t be any happier to have them on-board to deliver products with Android TV inside. Let us know if this news will affect your purchase decision if you’re in the market for a new smart TV in 2015.
