T-Mobile set-top box surfaces on FCC, ‘Un-carrier’ TV service can’t be far behind

Friday, November 9th, 2018

Late last year, T-Mobile announced its intentions to "uncarrier" television service, with its purchase of Layer3, an online TV provider. The first fruits of that acquisition have just reared their head at the FCC in the form of a new T-Mobile-branded set-top box.

FCC filings don't include a whole lot of information, but we do know based on the data provided that it features 2.4/5GHz Wi-Fi and Bluetooth (BLE, based on the description included in one of the internal images).

You can now control your Roku from Google Assistant

Tuesday, October 30th, 2018

Roku's Google Assistant integration was promised a few weeks ago along with Logitech Harmony and NVIDIA SHIELD. And while those two have already been announced, the Roku integration is now following suit.

You can now add Roku as a Home control service in Assistant or the Google Home app. But before you get started, you need to make sure you have a compatible model running Roku OS 8.1. The company says this only works in the US (though it probably means it only works for US English), and that launching Netflix content on Roku is not currently supported.

Google: New Android TV users doubled over the past year

Monday, May 7th, 2018

It's a little bit tough to see the big picture when we're stuck looking at the news that interests us as consumers, but Android TV has made large strides away from our observing gaze. In less than a year, ever since hardware from the Android TV Operator Tier started coming to the market, many Pay TV providers around the world have switched their boxes to run Google's software. The result: new Android TV users have doubled in the last year.

This is a list of existing and upcoming Android TV cable provider boxes

Monday, September 18th, 2017

When Arris announced last week that it would start making set-top boxes for cable providers running Android TV, one reader brought our attention to the fact that this wasn't a rare occurrence. We already knew about Airtel and Dish, but there are many more cable boxes running Android TV around the world that we didn't know about but luckily, there's one site that lists them all.

This isn't an official source — Google's Android TV site barely lists a couple of TVs and boxes — but it's compiled by a user (who seems to be a fellow Lebanese, hi!) and it's quite exhaustive.

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017

You've probably never heard of Arris International, but it's one of the world's largest set-top box manufacturers. Cable/satellite/TV operators will contract Arris to manufacture their proprietary set-top boxes, which the operators then sell to their customers. Today, Arris announced that it would begin offering new Android TV-based solutions to operators.

The company revealed multiple 4K-capable HDR set-tops powered by Android TV, based on the Android TV Operator Tier. In addition to the normal Android TV stuff, they include DVR and DVB support.
