AOL will provide its original video content to Google's Android TV platform, in an announcment made on the same day as Google revealed the first official Android TV hardware device, the Nexus Player set top TV box

In a statement, AOL President of Video Dermot McCormack said, "With the addition of Android TV we are able to expand the reach of our premium video library." That will include videos from the company's many web properties such as the Huffington Post, HuffLive, TechCrunch and others. AOL also shows original video programming such as Park Bench with Steve Buscemi.

Google first announced Android TV, a (sort of) revamp of its failed Google TV platform, in June as part of its Google I/O conference. In addition to the Nexus Player, Razer announced a few months ago its plans to launch a gaming-themed set-top box running on Android TV later this fall. Do you think Google's second attempt to enter the TV space will be successful?
