Beenius announced its new Android Set-Top Box (STB) client. The Android app extends Beenius' Beesmart open and flexible interactive TV middleware platform. Operators benefit from the lower deployment costs of Android along with the power of Beesmart to deliver customised, scalable services through IPTV, OTT, and hybrid cable on all devices.
Customers receive seamless access to the same 1 million+ apps as available on their Android tablets and smartphones through their Google Play account. The Android STB client means they can play a full range of games, access services, listen to music, and read books and magazines optimized for TV. At the same time they can stay connected by sharing through social networks using the BeeSocial TV features within the app.
