The Android TV Interface Has Been Compromised

Both Joel’s Sony 2016 800D 43″ and 2017 900E 65″ televisions, running Android TV 8.0, have been hit with a rather obtrusive sponsorship banner smack dab in the middle of the interface.

Google just might power the streaming box of your dreams in 2019

The consumer version of Android TV is now getting yet another redesign—its second in less than two years. Google isn’t ready to show off what it’s been working on, as the company is still experimenting with different approaches, but [Shalini Govil-Pai, Google] said the result will involve more personalized recommendations, and will make catching up on what you’re already watching easier. In service of those ideas, Google may rework or even eliminate some current features, such as the rows of content recommendations from individual apps on the home screen. – Jared Newman, TechHive » http://bit.ly/2H4wo3f

Amazon Fire TV 3 (Pendant) has gone out of stock — Usually an indicator of a new model coming soon

The currently listed in stock date of September 22nd should not be used as a gauge to determine when a new model will be released. Amazon has historically never used the return date as a hint to when a new model will be announced or released. Based on when Amazon traditionally released Fire TV models, if a new Fire TV is coming, it will likely be announced and/or released near the end of September or early October. The current Fire TV was announced on September 27, 2017 and released on October 25, 2017. – AFTVnews https://ift.tt/2BOo70F
