Software components and solutions for connected TV devices company iWedia has announced that it is working with Google to develop and deliver a Live TV application for Google TV and other Android TV OS devices.

The app is being developed to improve the user experience and enable TV manufacturers to add more value and increase revenue streams.

As well as basic features such as an EPG guide, channel list and parental controls, the Live TV app will also include:

  • Branding options for TV brands, with customisable look and feel
  • User friendly design and navigation
  • Rich metadata (optional add-on)
  • Voice Control with Google Assistant 
  • Deep linking with streaming services (in roadmap)
  • Seamless integration with Google TV’s Live TV tab

With a modern, user-friendly UI and options for brands to add value as well as increase revenues, we know that this app – which has already won the confidence of both Google and Skyworth – will meet and even exceed the needs of both TV manufacturers and end users.
