If you've been getting into the convenience and usability of the smartphone and tablet User Interface and are wondering just why your cable provider is unable to create anything with the same elegance and function, it may be time to slap Android on your TV -- yourself. There are a few ways to approach this, and all of the methods have pros and cons. The method Google has planned for us is with its native Google TV operating system -- a type of Android OS -- designed specifically for the big screen.

Their is nothing really on the Android system I care to put on a big screen TV. The Roku I use is very inexpensive and does very well putting content on my TV. If your a Apple fan you have of course Apple TV. I suspect in the end cable TV providers will of course move towards offering their TV content through their broadband service as a standalone service. Not requiring the traditional cable TV service. As more people drop cable TV and Satellite I think cable companies will have to acknowledge that streaming services are offering alternatives already. I can see a day when a person can buy a adaptor like what you describe to plug into your TV to access apps and services. Android of course is a cheap way to do this.
But TV's have already begun to offer these types of services without a adaptor.
