Google is considering making an entrance into the internet TV world by offering traditional TV programming to online subscribers with a new streaming service.

Samsung announced another device that will be headed to the market with Android to connect with all their smartphones and tablets. It's called the Samsung HomeSync media set-top box and today we've got a quick hands-on with it.

Would you like to know more?
Two mentions of Android TV in one day - coincidence? They look RATHER different, but the concept appears to be there - the one we're talking about here is made by Vidtonic and its an IPTV kit powered by Android and they say it'll be released at CES 2011 (just a handful of days from now!) This release is a hardware/software platform kit made for Android developers who'd like to bring their apps to the TV screen - sound like some future molding to you?
