Google TV sets up free live TV; Here is the list of channels

First reported nearly a year ago, Google TV is now making significant progress towards launching 50 channels of free, ad-supported streaming content, and we got our first look at the channel list.

About APK Insight: In this “APK Insight” post, we have unpacked the latest version of an app that Google uploaded to the Play Store. When we decompile these files (called APK files, in the case of Android apps), we can see different lines of code within this hint in possible future features. Keep in mind that Google may or may not ship these features at all, and our interpretation of what they are may be incomplete. We’ll try to enable those who are about to finish, however, to show you what they would look like if they did charge. With that in mind, keep reading.


With Google TV, the successor/redesign of Android TV, the company was looking to make its platform smarter and more competitive with other smart TV options. One of the benefits of owning a Samsung Smart TV is having access to Samsung TV Plus, which features over 200 channels of free content, supported by ads.

In comparison, Google TV has steadily worked on its live TV options, gaining deep integration With apps like Pluto TV and Philo, as well as the company’s YouTube TV. as it was I mentioned last yearGoogle TV is set to expand support for live TV by including its own set of channels.

According to the text in the latest Android TV Launcher app, things will start with an initial set of 50 channels.

Enjoy 50 channels of live TV without the need to sign up, register or download

To be clear, these differ from other options available on Google TV today, in that integrations require you to download an app, while the new text says channels are available “without the need to […] Download.” More clearly, the player refers to these “Google TV channels”.

So what should we expect to air when Google TV acquires its free ad-supported live TV channels? Based on the description within the app, there should be a suitable variety of “News, Sports, Movies and Shows”. Fortunately, the app also includes a graphic showing over 30 channels of the soon-to-be-available channels.

Based on the list so far, it looks like Google has managed to get quite a few well-known channels and brands to bring out the free live TV options. While it’s still far from over 200 channels from Samsung TV Plus, this is a solid start that should have something for everyone.
