Android Vodafone TV (2018 Android TV box)
#1
There are now two flavours of Android TV out in the market. Android TV OS and Android TV operator tier (OT).
Android TV OT allows pay TV companies to customise the Launcher main screen to prioritise their own streaming content first.

There are quite a lot of these types of ATV OT devices now on the market worldwide, click HERE for a complete list.
The trouble is with Google allowing ATV OT customisation - operators can now block specific Apps installation completely.
We see this in Australia with the ATV OT - Foxtel Now Box blocking Kodi installs, plus there is no Netflix on that device.

Anyway enough of that, this device is the start of what I predict will be a flood of similar cheap Google Certified - DVB capable - Android TV streaming devices. It runs the full monty Android TV OS and has no App install restrictions.
