If you have an Android TV-based device, you can now find out what happens next on Homeland, The Leftovers, and The Good Wife with Showtime, HBO Now, and CBS All Access.
All three services are available to download on Android TV, as are Disney Movies Anywhere, EPIX, the WWE and UFC channels. They join a growing list of more than 50 apps already available for download, including Sling TV, Crackle, Vevo, Pandora, TED TV, Plex, Netflix, and Hulu.
"Android TV is all about choice," George Audi, business development manager for Google Play, wrote in a blog post.
Namely, the choice between Sony, Sharp, Razer, and Nvidia for a device on which to watch new programming. But this week, Google added Hisense, TCL, and several other TV manufacturers to the Android TV family. Audi also announced the Pace, Sagemcom, and Technicolor set-top-box manufacturers, as well as KDDI and Telecom Italia, as new Pay TV partners.
"So, as the nights get longer and colder, you now have another reason to stay in and binge on your favorite TV shows, movies, and sports content right from your Android TV screen," Audi said.
Earlier this year, Razer debuted its Android-powered Forge TV microconsole, featuring 16GB of internal storage, a quad-core CPU, and "gaming-grade graphics," for $99.99. Despite an emphasis on gaming, it also provides access to the Google Play store and supports Android TV media apps.
A couple months later, Nvidia entered the market with its Tegra-powered Shield smart TV media box for streaming, downloading, and purchasing games and 4K video content.
Sony also integrated the program directly into its latest super-slim, Android-powered 4K Ultra HD TVs, which range from $2,499 to $5,499.
