Irdeto Survey Reveals Android to Play a Pivotal Role in the Future of TV Distribution Posted: 11/04/2017

Irdeto, the world leader in digital platform security, and Ovum have released results from a new global survey indicating that a majority of video service providers have either Android TV or Android Open Source Project (AOSP) on their technology roadmaps. Conducted in February 2017, Is Android the future of the set-top box? found that 72% of respondents are considering Android implementations as a part of their set-top box (STB) strategies. In addition, 50% of respondents see Android as being important for their goals within the next five years. The 300 TV industry professionals surveyed also identified a variety of benefits they perceive Android TV to offer, including the availability of new features and services, faster time-to-market, an attractive user interface and cost efficiencies. However, while a majority of respondents indicated a commitment to Android, only 54% of video service providers are willing to pay more for Android chipsets than traditional chipsets with embedded middleware.
