Google reveals partners for Android TV

At Google's annual developer conference in San Francisco, the company revealed that it will be teaming up with TP Vision (Philips), Sharp, Sony, Razer and Asus to build Android TV into TV sets, set-top boxes and game consoles.

This additional information comes just a week after internet giants Google announced Android TV which will be able to interface with both live and IP streaming TV. While watching a live broadcast, users can use Android TV to access an EPG to scroll through channels as well as access streaming apps, details of which are yet to be released.

The platform will let users broadcast content to their TV as well as search popular content, apps and games using things like voice search and Google Knowledge Graph allowing users to talk directly to the TV to voice search for content.

Do you think this will be more successful than Google's original TV proposition, Google TV, or will we see just another platform being added to an already busy market?
