The Android TV Operator Tier Launcher: Operator-Driven User Experience

In the world of pay-TV, there has long been a thirst for standard platforms that would allow rapid development of applications and user-interfaces on the set-top box. In September 2016, Google announced the ‘Operator Tier’: a certification program to allow operators to distribute their own custom set-top boxes based on the Android TV platform. In response to this announcement, Accedo developed ‘Accedo Launcher’: a Google-certified, specialist product framework that enables global TV operators to replace the standard Android TV Operator Tier Launcher with a consistent set-top box experience that is customized to their brand.

This white paper provides all the background information about the Operator Tier announcement as well as a run-through of the Accedo Launcher product framework.
