Android TV is DOA.

Android TV is going to fail for the same reasons Google TV, set-top boxes, and smart TVs have all failed:

  • People aren't going to buy new TVs to get Android TV.
  • People aren't going to buy set-top boxes after they've been given a cable/satellite TV box.

The key to getting internet TV to succeed is selling a set-top box when people sign up for internet/TV service. Basically, set-top boxes need to be sold the same way smartphones are sold. These boxes would have TV tuning built in if needed. Current subscribers would be able to buy them also.
