Will Ouya Beat the Apple TV to the Streaming TV App Pie?

By Sam Gibbs on at

We've been saying for years all the Apple TV needs are channel-specific streaming TV apps and it'd be truly awesome. Now Ouya's CEO has come out and basically said that the mini Android console should come packing a load of streaming apps from major publishers and she's "talking to everyone".

Of course, that could just mean the likes of Netflix, LoveFilm, and Now TV, but it could also mean BBC iPlayer, ITV Player, 4oD, and even possibly live streaming TV channels. There's no reason why the hardware can't handle it, and Android's totally capable of supporting that kind of thing.

OnLive, TuneIn, and XBMC are already on their way for Ouya, so maybe the £100 Kickstarter gaming sensation could end up being a media powerhouse too. Then it really would be worth buying regardless of whether the games are any good. [Gizmag via TechRadar]
