Finnish service provider DNA has launched an open ecosystem Android TV hub which combines a set-top box, Chromecast built-in and a smart phone-style app store for TVs.

Dubbed as DNA TV-hubi, device enables customers to watch TV and use online applications, play games and listen to music via one easy-to-use system. In addition, customers can watch all terrestrial and DNA’s cable and IPTV channels, and the device is both HD and 4K compatible. 

DNA TV-hubi uses the Android TV operating system, so Katsomo, Yle Areena and Ruutu, the apps of the three major TV channels in Finland, are available on the system, as well as YouTube and Deezer and a wide range of games and other apps.

Netflix will also become available for the device soon. DNA TV-hubi includes Chromecast built-in, which enables users to easily mirror contents from your smart phone or tablet to your TV. You can download applications for DNA TV-hubi from the Google Play app store.

Mikko Saarentaus, Director, DNA Entertainment Business
The pre-sales of DNA TV-hubi proved that there is a real demand for an Android TV device and a new way of watching television. We have already sold thousands of hubs in advance. People are accustomed to using apps on their phones, and DNA TV-hubi makes them easily available for television.
