OnePlus TV To Run On An 'Optimized' Version Of Android TV

However, if you do prefer the Android TV operating system, you’ll be pleased to learn that the upcoming OnePlus TV will be running on Google’s software. In an interview with Gadgets360, OnePlus CEO Pete Lau was quoted as saying, “One more key selling point that I want to highlight is that we are really optimising the Android TV system which I don’t see a lot of brands in Indian market [doing]. Because of our great partnership with Google, not only do we use their Android TV system but we also optimise it very deeply.”

He adds, “I’ve seen some premium or high-end TVs currently available in the market. Some of the TVs might have great quality but in terms of user experience they are not doing very well. And vice versa — I’ve seen some TVs may have great user experience but they are not very high-end or premium. But for us to do a great TV the definition is — great quality and great user experience. So this is what we want to achieve as the first step.”

Youtube Arrives On Fire Tv As Prime Video Lands On Chromecast And Android Tvs

YouTube Arrives On Fire TV As Prime Video Lands On Chromecast And Android TVs


A feud between Google and Amazon had essentially forced users to pick sides since the companies blocked their services from each other’s platforms. So YouTube wasn’t available on Fire TV and Amazon Prime Video wasn’t available on Chromecast and Android TVs. This was bound to change after both companies announced that they were making peace and would allow the services on their respective networks. That’s precisely what has happened today.

Starting today, Amazon Prime Video subscribers can stream content from their preferred streaming service on Chromecast and Android TV devices. The Prime Video app is now available for these platforms from Google Play.

It makes a lot of sense as to why studios want to recreate video games as TV series or movies. This is because the plot is there, characters are already developed, and there is already a following which more or less guarantees some level of success. However, more often than not, a lot of adaptations tend to fall flat on their faces.

Apple Tv Will Support Xbox One And Ps4 Controllers

Apple TV Will Support Xbox One And PS4 Controllers


Apple will soon improve the gaming experience on the Apple TV set-top box significantly. The company announced at the Worldwide Developers Conference 2019 today that an upcoming firmware update for the set-top box will bring support for Xbox One and PlayStation 4 controllers to the Apple TV.

It’s no surprise that Apple has waited all this time to bring controller support to its set-top box. This would have always made sense regardless of when Apple had done it. The company is doing it now as its new Apple Arcade game subscription service is due to arrive soon. This service will offer more than 100 new and exclusive curated games which will be playable across Mac, iPad, iPhone, and the Apple TV.

Sony Confirms Twisted Metal Tv Series Is In Development

Sony Confirms Twisted Metal TV Series Is In Development

This was confirmed during an investor relations presentation where Sony Pictures Entertainment Chairman and CEO Tony Vinciquerra was quoted as saying, “We have a TV show we just agreed to get underway that will be developed from the IP on PlayStation, it’s called Twisted Metal. It’s a game that was put out many years ago and we’re going to develop a TV series around that.”

He does not mention any other details about the series, such as who will be directing it, who will be writing the script, who are the cast, and most important of all, when will it be released. However, the fact that a series is being made is pretty exciting on its own. This is because of the nature of the game which is vehicular combat, which we suppose for a slightly more modern reference, you could think of it as being similar to the Death Race movie, or maybe a more violent version of Rocket League.

Sony's Upcoming 98-inch 8K TV Will Cost You $70,000

For those who love staying on the bleeding edge of tech, you might have heard that Sony was working on an 98-inch 8K TV. The good news is that if that TV caught your interest, it seems that Sony has since officially confirmed the pricing of the device where it will cost you an eye-watering $70,000.

Yes, for the price of several cars, you will be able to own the 98-inch Master Series Z9G. If you don’t have the cash for the 98-inch model, not to worry because the pricing for the other Master Series Z9G TVs have also been revealed, such as the 85-inch model which will cost $13,000. The price difference is massive, but this is usually the case when it comes to monitors and TVs where even slight differences in size can mean massive differences in price.

Apple TV Gets PlayStation Vue's Multi-Picture Mode


PlayStation Vue, Sony’s live TV streaming service, isn’t just available on the company’s gaming consoles as the name might have you believe. It’s available on a wide variety of platforms including the Apple TV. The Apple TV is now getting a feature which has been available on the PS4 app for PlayStation Vue: multi-picture mode.

Sony is rolling out the multi-picture feature for PlayStation Vue on the Apple TV starting today. It will roll out the feature to the set-top box by way of an update for the app. The multi-picture mode allowed users to have three channels running on the screen at the same time. Sony is going to improve it further for the Apple TV by supporting four channels at the same time instead of three on the PlayStation 4.

Philips Unveils A $350 4K Android TV With Google Assistant

To a certain extent that is true of certain brands and models, but if you have a relatively small budget, then you might be interested to learn that Philips has actually launched a pretty affordable smart TV.

This comes in the form of two lineups where they are offered in a variety of sizes, ranging from 43-inches and going up to 75-inches, but the cheapest model will be priced starting at $350.

Panasonic's Gz2000 Is The 'world's Most Cinematic Tv'

Panasonic's GZ2000 Is The 'World's Most Cinematic TV'

#CES2019 – At CES 2019 we’ve seen quite a number of interesting TVs from your usual suspects, such as LG who announced that their rollable TV will be launching this year, and Samsung who took the wraps off a monstrous 98-inch 8K QLED TV. Now it looks like Panasonic has some TV announcements of its own in the form of the GZ2000.

Now the GZ2000 is not the biggest TV announced at CES and is offered at 55-inch and 65-inch models. It doesn’t feature a flexible/rollable display either. It also seems to be using OLED versus other companies who are pushing QLED. However this is a TV that Panasonic is calling the “world’s most cinematic TV” thanks to Panasonic’s work with Stefan Sonnenfeld, a leading colorist who has worked with many filmmakers in the past.

Google Boasts Android TV Has Tens Of Millions Of Users

Google’s Android operating system has found massive success in the mobile industry, which is why it wasn’t surprising that Google had attempted to bring its Android platform and branding to other areas, such as wearables (known as Android Wear before it was rebranded to Wear OS), cars (Android Auto), and even smart TVs with Android TV.

While we can’t speak for Wear OS or Android Auto, it seems that Android TV is doing pretty well for itself as Google is claiming that the platform is home to tens of millions of users. Speaking to Multichannel News (via Mashable), Google’s senior director of project management for Android TV Shalini Govil-Pai revealed those numbers.

AT&T Shipping DirecTV Android TV Box To Testers


AT&T is getting into the Android TV-powered box game as well through DirecTV. The company has reportedly started shipping test units of the DirecTV Android TV box with a reskinned launcher. That’s a major reason why the user interface appears to be quite different than what we’re used to seeing on Android TV boxes.

The DIRECTV Now box runs Android 8.0 Oreo with the operator tier launcher. This allows AT&T to customize the user interface and bring it in line with its branding. Since the box allows users to watch live TV, it always defaults to the live TV interface when switched on.
