Wish I could make the hangout, here are my thoughts...
Google TV needs to be rebranded as “Android TV”. Google engineers need to redesign it and release it at a later date, maybe running Key Lime Pie OS. Partner with a manufacturer and release a nexus TV box.
The Nexus TV box should include
- Hardware for cable cards (working with cable providers, can replace the existing cable boxes).
- Blu-ray disc player (replace DVD/Blu-ray players).
- Compatible with USB devises like keyboard, mouse, HDD. (Current competing smart tv peripherals are primitive and difficult to use.
- Access to Google PLAY with all media available in all countries, not just North America).
Google TV (soon to be Android TV) needs to become the standard hardware cable providers issue to customers. Talk to them see what the cable providers want.
Let me know what you all think.
