The US is hardly the only market for Android TV. The streaming platform will debut in Columbia with Colombian telecommunications leader Claro’s new Claro Box TV streaming service with Harmonic.
“With the launch of Claro Box TV, we are the first service provider in Colombia to implement an Android TV service,” said Walter Borda, Innovation Corporate Director at Claro Colombia. “Claro Box TV is a revolutionary leap forward in streaming experience: our subscribers can enjoy traditional linear channels as well as start-over and catch-up TV, cloud DVR, remote control voice assistant, third-party streaming services, and more than 300 applications from the Google Play Store.”
International presence could be key to Google as the US market is so thoroughly dominated by Roku and Amazon’s Fire OS.
