HATHWAY PLAY BOX AND ULTRA SMART HUB
We have plenty of set-tops but how many are based on Android TV? The Hathway Play box is allowing users to stream Google Play content as well as enjoy Android games on the big screen. It comes with a remote that supports voice commands along with Google Assistant having separate buttons for Google Play, Netflix and YouTube. There is also the Hathway Ultra Smart Hub, India’s first cable hybrid box that combines linear TV with Google Play services in HDR. The simple navigation enables linear TV owners to download apps from the Play store but it only works where Hathway cable is present. Chromecast is available to mirror stuff from Android, iOS, Mac, Windows via a mobile app with more OTT app integration on the cards. As the boxes are Android certified, they could be supported with updates for up to eight years which all depends on Hathway.
