Google TV hasn’t been the company’s best venture, but that doesn’t stop other companies from expanding on the concept. At CES 2014, Hisense showed off their new set-top box, the Pulse Pro, which runs what Hisense calls Android TV v4. While it’s technically not Google TV, it runs Google TV apps and has the same PrimeTime guide.
However, Pulse Pro has some big differences from Google TV, including a very image-focused home screen design that allows for quicker access to hubs like Netflix, Vudu, and Amazon Video. Also, Pulse Pro comes with a better remote that has built-in buttons for Netflix, Vudu, and Amazon in addition to a microphone and motion sensor. Pricing and availability info is still up in the air, so we’ll have to see just how well it works.
