Digitimes Research: Digital home industry sees new developments in June from Google, Aereo and Samsung
Tom Lo, DIGITIMES Research, Taipei [Wednesday 16 July 2014]

In June 2014, the digital home industry saw several developments worth noting. Google-owned Nest Labs released a new smart home API that is open to iOS and Android developers. Digitimes Research believes the new platform will open up cross partnerships across the digital home industry as well as bring increased advantages to end-user products.

Additionally, Aereo's over-the-air (OTA) TV services over the Internet was ruled illegal by the US Supreme Court. Aereo is trying to appeal the ruling with claims it is a traditional cable company and that such services are legitimate.

Samsung Electronics meanwhile launched its Multi Power TV services geared towards Africa-based users in order to further establish its TV services and ecosystem throughout emerging economies in the continent, added Digitimes Research.
