This short PowerPoint report presents the results of Ovum's latest smart TV forecasts by OS. It also provides a SWOT analysis for the top four smart TV OS providers: Google, LG, Roku, and Samsung.


  • Based on current OS selection assumptions, we expect Google to grow its Android TV market share to 35% of smart TV sales in 2019, equivalent to 56.7 million devices.
  • Other connected TV devices such as media streamers, set-top boxes, and games consoles will influence the market share of TV OSs.
  • Local content sourcing and device distribution will drive the demand for proprietary and curated OSs such as Roku OS.
