    And this is Android. It's an android app issue....

    And yep. This is why real play/pause/ff/rew buttons need to make a come back and then the device just maps to the appropriate app function.

    IDK. My guess is that it will be somewhat of a redesign since it looks a bit different aesthetically from the new Google TV UI. I'm sure they'll want to use the same fonts, color scheme, etc. But in terms of features and content, they're already pretty similar.

    I thought you were saying that it's a matter of Peacock not wanting to support that kind of feature so I was pointing out that they already do on Apple TV.

    On Google TV, I think the issue is whether a particular app has gotten into Google's content database, allowing Google to ingest their list of titles into their system. (This is also the way TiVo/Rovi works.) Once that happens, then its content can be surfaced via Google recommendations on Google TV, in the current Google Play Movies & TV app, and on the web as Alex_7 noted above.

    On the old Android TV home screen, it IS a matter of the specific Android TV app targeting that OS's APIs in order to work with the Play Next watchlist (which few apps support) and to publish their own rows of recommended content.

    My info came from the tivo dev. They want to integrate it into Stream and they can't. It's an android app issue they're working on with peacock. So it's safe to say Google is in the same boat. This issue was already talked about in a previous thread when Peacock was mentioned. Which is when I brought it up to the dev.

    Confirmed Google TV OS will be coming to Android TV devices in the near future.
    The google live stream event Launch Night In just confirmed this.

    Yikes on the color options. Big mistake, IMO, not to offer one in black or dark gray.

    Well it should be hidden behind your TV or receiver, so shouldn't be that bad.

    Just picked up two. I am going to return my TS4K since, after thinking about it, I want the option to turn HDR off. No telling when TiVo will fix that.

    Plus, the single watchlist of the Chromecast with Google TV is a very cool feature.

    Interesting to see Peacock in there, it might be supported after all

    Yeah, it is. It's even listed as a supported app on the official Google TV site I linked above.

    BTW, I haven't seen any trace of Showtime, CBS All Access or Epix in any of the screenshots or references to Google TV. Can those apps be designated among the ones you want to get recommendations from?

    He's talking about support for Peacock in the new Google TV UI, meaning that content from that app can show up among Google's recommendations and that it can be part of your Watchlist and Continue Watching row.

    When you ask about Peacock getting its own "channel," are you referring to a dedicated content row in the old Android TV home screen?
