Sony, Sharp and Philips are on the bandwagon and will release TVs based on Android TV in 2015. Android TV combines streaming services, apps, and a game console in one platform. It will also be available in small TV streamer boxes.
LG has a range of new OLED TVs coming out in 2014 as well as new Ultra HD and Full HD TVs. LG is also introducing a new webOS-based Smart TV platform that looks promising. Could 2014 be the year where LG establishes itself as the leading Korean TV innovator?
Panasonic is introducing their new AX900 with “plasma-like picture quality” and a range of new Full HD models – some very basic, some with advanced features. Panasonic is also introducing a new Smart TV user interface called Life+ that recommends relevant content.
In 2014, Philips will introduce its first TV with the new Android-based Smart TV platform. They will also launch Ultra HD TVs and TVs with twin tuners, Miracast screen mirroring and a new Cloud TV app that streams TV channels over the internet.

First Google bought SageTV and now this. Google TV devices such as the Logitech Revue and Sony’s TVs with built-in Google TV functionality are now showing up in the Android Market, suggesting that Google is indeed preparing a new version of Google TV.

Android Market on TVs?

Last week Google bought the media center company SageTV and now Google seems to be preparing Android Market for TVs.

Users of Logitech Revue, Sony TVs and other devices with Google TV can now see their devices listed as “other” in their list of My Devices.

Google previously hinted at Android Market for TVs but since then we have not heard much of it. With these findings and recent news it seems that the next generation of Google TV is closer than we think.
