"We are pleased to pass this important milestone. The close cooperation and support from Broadcom and Google was integral to this success," said Mr. ID Ham, Samsung Electronics, Vice President of STB SW R&D Leader. "Our Smart TV set-top box based on Android can now give operators like KT another exciting way to deliver a rich, interactive digital TV experience to their customers."

  • Supports Android 4.0, and offers a range of Google Services.
  • Includes Widevine DRM decryption of premium content.
  • Provides side-by-side support with Alticast MHP/ACAP middleware for simultaneous delivery of satellite broadcast and IP-based content.

"This is a significant accomplishment in the development and deployment of new TV entertainment programming and services," said Dan Marotta, Broadcom Executive Vice President and General Manager, Broadband Communications Group.  "With a high level of focus and commitment by the Android teams at Samsung Electronics and Google, we were able to achieve the industry's first integration of GMS services on an Android set-top box. We are committed to further development of features and capabilities in our set-top box platforms to power the next generation of connected home devices."
