Philips TVs to accelerate Android integration in 2015

TP Vision is pushing on with its integration of the Android operating system into Philips TVs.

Almost the entire 2015 range of Philips TVs, including Philips Smart TVs and all Philips UHD TVs, will be powered by Android TV.

“We want to leverage the advantage of being a pioneer member of Android’s large, fast growing eco-system. It attracts a huge base of developers, who now can easily adapt their apps for different types of devices including TVs”, explains  Albert Mombarg, Head of Smart TV at TP Vision.

All Philips TVs powered by Android TV will offer  direct access to Google Play store and to the broad offering on the Philips Smart TV platform, including video on demand and catch-up TV services. In addition, all Philips Smart TVs powered by Android provide access to online gaming services such as OnLive.
