The future of remote control UX on Android TV is here - ready to scale
Android TV allows pay-TV operators worldwide to deliver content to their subscribers within their own bespoke UI/UX. Yet a big factor in user experience excellence is the remote control as input device: Consumers interact with it manually, but now more and more they are using voice as part of their content discovery, selection and service control journeys. In this Showcase session, 3SS, Google and leading remote control vendors t4h. (Tech4home) and TW Electronics / Ohsung together explore what next-generation remote controls look like and their role in the overall Android TV Ecosystem for operators.
