Android apps on your TV

At CES 2012, Myriad Group and Broadcom will be showing off a new platform from Broadcom that is powered by the Myriad Alien Vue software solution. The joint effort between the two firms is to get Android apps on the TV via the Alien Vue software.

This should allow you to play games and use other apps that you love on the Android platform right on your HDTV. The Broadcom platform is a set-top box that is a DLNA solution. I think this sort of set top box is the preferred solution when compared to other smart boxes that access their own app stores. The solution will be on display at the show.

“Broadcom is pleased to support Myriad Alien Vue, driving popular Android apps to the TV,” said Aidan O’Rourke, Senior Director, Set-Top Box, Broadcom. “This enables a quick solution for set-top boxes using legacy operating systems to seamlessly deliver an exciting Android-based entertainment experience.”
