Google TV update rolling out to Sony TVs


The much improved Google TV user interface has started rolling out to Sony TVs across the UK. The brand new interface replaces the old Android TV and brings with it a more modern design as well as a new discover tab which brings together suggested content from across your streaming services (apart from Netflix) in to one easy to navigate screen.

The discover tab will likely be a great source for finding your next favourite Movie or TV that you otherwise may have missed bouncing from app to app. The new Google TV update is fast and responsive on my AG9 OLED so far and it feels much better than the Android TV that it replaced which was definitely showing its age.
