While Google TV is integrated into some newer televisions and Blu-ray players, consumers that don't have Google TV built into their systems can purchase a separate set-top box that provides Google TV functionality.

Designed for touch screen mobile devices such as smartphones and tablet computers, Android is a Linux-based operating system, open source that allows the software to be freely modified and distributed by device manufacturers, wireless carriers and enthusiast developers. Android has a large community of developers writing applications ("apps") that extend the functionality of devices, written primarily in a customized version of the Java programming language. However and despite the fact that it has been primarily designed for phones and tablets, Android have seen additional applications on televisions, games consoles and other electronics.
