Googler Marc Bächinger has hinted that Android TV is going to have more influence in India, following in a larger effort to move the country to smartphones with their Android One program.

The tweet is fairly vague, not mentioning any hardware or software partners, but it is likely that some will be announced in the months ahead.
Premium Indian movie service JioCinema last week launched on Android TV, giving many users access to big movies on big screens. If OEMs begin to manufacture cheap TV set-top boxes in India, there could be a large number of apps that will spring up to take advantage of the new market.
