The internet of things has transformed how we interact with our TVs, from TVs to the new digital cameras we’ve been using in kitchens and dining rooms.
But how can we use these new systems to make more intelligent home devices?
This is the question that Netflix’s VP of Product Innovation, Rob Schrier, and Netflix CEO Reed Hastings are tackling.
Schrier spoke with Bloomberg about the company’s latest initiative, which is called TVOS.
According to Schrier the company wants to build an intelligent home system that can be configured and used by anyone.
The idea behind TVOS is that it’s built on top of the Netflix App, which has become a standard for devices to integrate with their TVs.
Schrier says that the app is now a universal platform that is accessible to anyone and everyone.
That means the devices can be programmed and controlled remotely by anyone on the internet.
Schrie says that users can also use the app to remotely connect to the TVs themselves and turn on and off any lights, dim the lights, change the channel, set a timer, and much more.
The system is designed to be intuitive and user-friendly, which means that it has a simple UI that lets users easily navigate to the settings that they want to change, and then the system will ask for that input.
That way the system can be used by any device that supports Netflix’s App, even those that are not on Netflix’s platform.
The goal is to make it so that a smart TV is simply a device, with no special software to be customized.
It’s designed to work with all TVs that are compatible with Netflix’s software.
Schrie said that the goal is for a lot of people to have a TV that can control itself.
For the moment, that will include TVs that have Amazon Alexa, as well as TVs with Amazon Fire TV, Roku, and Chromecast.
However, the goal here is to take the basic functionality of a TV and give it some capabilities that would allow it to connect to a lot more devices.
Schriemes first thoughts on the idea of TVOS are that the basic setup of a smart television should be pretty straightforward.
It has a TV, a remote, a TV app, and a TV remote.
Then, if that TV doesn’t have an Alexa Remote, you’ll have to add a remote control app to it.
Schriers first thoughts are that, for now, it seems like this is going to be an open-ended, collaborative effort.
He said that while they are focused on building the smart home ecosystem, there are plans for more collaboration with other companies.
Schries hopes that this is a first step toward a broader ecosystem, and that we’ll see other companies taking advantage of the same capabilities that Netflix is building for its smart home.
This could be a good start.
Schrys is currently building a beta version of TV OS, but he doesn’t want to announce much about that until he has it working.
He wants to let users test it and see what they think.
He is also hoping that the beta will be available for a long time.
