Sony's TV division has lost money for 10 years straight, but the Japanese giant is still optimistic about its upcoming lineup.
The Tokyo-based company could start shipping the first Sony televisions with Google's Android TV platform, starting February 2015.
Sony was the first major TV manufacturer to adopt the Android TV platform, and now sources close to Mobile Geeks reveal that the mass production could begin in January.
Apparently, prices will reportedly start upwards of $700 for a 43-inch television, and range up to $4,000 for high-end 4K TV sets.
The unconfirmed report also claims that the upcoming Sony TV range will have direct access to Sony's PS4 Remote Play. This means that users will be able to play games from the PS4 over your Wi-Fi network from anywhere in the house. Reportedly, the TVs may run Sony's PlayStation Now service.
These upcoming Sony-made TVs will function a lot like the Nexus Player. Being powered by Google's Android TV platform, the TVs will run Google Play Store, Play Music and other core Google services on offer. Interestingly, Android TV also features live television features.
Sony has lost money in the past years, struggling amid intense competition from Samsung and LG. With Sony betting big on Google's Android TV platform for growth and new opportunities, we're extremely optimistic about the company's future prospects.
