When and how would Android TV be available to users and in which countries?
As we’ve been informed by the Google I/O conference.
Android TV means TVs which comes Android OS built in(read Smart TVs with Android OS). It's no doubt that such TVs will come with Google services,but will be also accompanied by Netflix in regions where it's available.
Like chromecast , can it relay streaming video from any webpage?
If the TV manufacturers don't mess with its browser,then you might be able to stream online video using Chrome browser.
What do you mean to say or refer to ?
Dear Susendeep ,, In context of your answer , the word "Jaya" means or refers to "well done" or "nice answer". The word "Jaya" which is commonly spelt as "Jai" implies glorification. Please read the following page : http://www.sda-archives.com/tftd/tftd/2013/oct/tftd_101713.html
and check the following line : " So I immediately started loudly singing Jaya Radha Madhava"
The Android version to be used in TVs would be L.This version of OS is still not finalized and it would be upon manufacturers on how they'll market such devices.It might take months to get them finalized.Google has launched TV remote control app for developers to test it.
Does it work like HDMI Android dongles , which though not made by Google , would result in same features?
And , android tv , is it true , would work through Google Play Movies?
Country availability for apps & digital content
