Android on TV

Android on TV gives users access to the Play Store where they can download Android games and apps, you can also make use of other Google services like Music, movies and TV Shows. Games can be played using the phillips game controller, since the TV doesn’t have a touch screen you won’t be able to play all games, only those optimized for controllers.

The Android version on Phillips smart TV’s has its currently TV operation system called Phillips Smart TV integrated into it, which means that you also get services like Netflix, cloud TV and Spotify pre-installed.
