SmartTV_Example
"We learned the hard way that deploying apps on Android Smart TVs can be painful, especially for older and lower-end models, which tend to suffer from high startup times and a lot of stalling. With THEOplayer’s latest Android SDKs, we were able to deploy with the user experience our viewers expect."
