A new application from Google is live on Google Play, one which makes us feel that the $100 investment in the Nexus Player was a good one. Called Live Channels, it appears Google is setting up the ability for owners of Android TV to watch live TV shows, movies, sports, and news, all through an Android TV.
Unfortunately, the app is unavailable for download, but given its existence on Google Play, we must be close.
So, how will it work? Great question. As stated by Google, you can watch your favorite shows from sources such as a built-in tuner or IP-based tuner, but more information is needed on how these sources will cast the content to an Android TV.
From the application’s description on Google Play.
Live Channels app is for watching Live TV. Watch your favorite news, sports, movies and TV shows from various channel sources such as built-in tuner, IP-based tuners, and more and show them instantly on your Android TV.
For all of you Nexus Player owners out there, we will let you know as soon as it is available for download.
