T-Mobile is working on a new streaming device running on Google's Android TV platform for its TVision home TV service. While the device itself hasn't surfaced yet, its remote control has popped up in an FCC listing.
As noted by the folks over at 9to5Google, the upcoming Android TV hardware will allow TVision customers to access not just live TV, but also popular streaming services like Netflix, Hulu, and more. The images of the remote control for the upcoming Android TV device from T-Mobile reveals a Google Assistant button, along with shortcuts for Netflix and YouTube.
