Android TV - or Google TV – is Google’s version of a video solution. Here, content will be available from the internet and you will be able to search across different platforms. Content should be available whenever the users wants it and therefore the user will not have to rely on the fixed program schedule from the TV stations. And most content will be free, Google says.

People of Lava wants to integrate this concept in their Scandinavia TV even before Google has their own product in stores. And we can expect interesting functionality such as Apps like we know them from the Android mobile operating system.

People of Lava has also integrated the internet-browser from Google that lets you explore the internet freely.
