Sony Bravia hands-on

Android TV has seen some big advancements since its launch at Google I/O 2014. While a number of major hardware manufacturers have partnered with Google to bring the platform to more devices, the number of Android TV-specific applications is still relatively scarce compared to the competition. But that might change soon, according to a recent announcement post from Nvidia.

Included in its Shield Android TV announcement post, Nvidia made reference to a few new applications that will soon make their way to the platform, including HBO Go, Twitch, Vimeo, CBS News, USA Today and many more. Many of these apps have had cast functionality for some time, but so far they have been unavailable for download on the Android TV platform.

Here’s the full list of new apps we can expect to see on Android TV soon:

  • HBO Now
  • HBO Go
  • CBS News
  • CBS Sports
  • Fox Sports
  • FX Now
  • Fox Now
  • Fox News
  • EPIX
  • WWE
  • UFC
  • USA Today
  • Vimeo
  • Qello
  • Vudu
  • Twitch

To be clear, no dates were given as to when we can expect these apps to land on Android TV. We’ll be sure to update you as we learn more. This news comes after Google’s recent announcement that HBO Now would soon make its way to the Google Play Store, a service that has been exclusive to Apple up until this point.
