What does powered by Android TV mean with the Humax AURA UHD Freeview Play 4K Recorder?

Smarter TV.

Google has developed its own smart TV platform: Android TV. It is similar to its major rivals Amazon Fire and Roku but it features Google tools which we are all familiar with so why not choose Google’s Android TV for a friendly user experience with their exceptional operating system.

Android is in mobile phones, tablets, cars and watches. TV was a logical next step for them.

Android TV uses the internet connection and your Google account. Download content, apps, games, streaming services, check your social media and view your media content with ease.

Chromecast, Google Assistant and direct access to the Google Play store are in built.

From the home page you navigate screens via menus, Google Assistant facilitates voice control and you can access more than 500000 shows and films plus recommendations via Assistant and the Google Play store has over 5000 apps to choose from.

Amazon Prime, Disney +, Youtube, HBO Max and Netflix are among the various services supported by Android TV.

Google has an official list of brands that they know provide the optimum version of Android TV; there are many imitations which don’t match the original and best source. Place your trust in a popular brand for confidence.

Reassess Your Viewing Choices

Most of your favourite programmes are available without cable or satellite contracts which carry fees. Freeview isn’t being creative with numbers when they say that 95% of the most watched shows are available on their platform. According to BARB (British Audience Research Board) in the week commencing 19th October 2020 all of the top 50 watched shows across all broadcasting TV channels in the country were on BBC1, BB2, ITV1, Channel 4 and Channel 5. So do you really need to pay a provider for entertainment? That’s for you to decide but when you have an outstanding product like the Humax AURA UHD Freeview Play 4K Recorder on the market, it makes you think about your options doesn’t it? .
