AOL's full library of premium content is now available through Google's Android TV – marking another step in AOL's video content distribution strategy. Android TV will feature AOL's library of nearly 1 million premium videos including AOL Originals like the Emmy-nominated original series Park Bench with Steve Buscemi and The Future Starts Here with Tiffany Shlain. As part of the content offering, AOL's movie library including Miramax films and AOL's brand portfolio including HuffPost Live, TechCrunch, and MAKERS will be available through the app and device.
Android TV brings a tailored primetime entertainment experience straight to the user in their own living room. Personalized content recommendations appear automatically on a user's home screen, and users can utilize a voice search feature, cast from their laptops, phones and tablets, as well as control Android TV devices from their phones and Android Wear devices. The deal highlights AOL's continued commitment to strengthening consumer video offerings, and providing viewers with the content they love across every screen and every device.
"This announcement represents a natural continuation of our connected TV and OTT device strategy", said Dermot McCormack, President of AOL Video and Studios. "As video viewing habits evolve, it's crucial that the videos people love are available when they want them and on their preferred device. With the addition of Android TV we are able to expand the reach of our premium video library."

As 2,500 business, political and academic leaders from around the world gather at the World Economic Forum in Davos, Switzerland this week, The Huffington Post and HuffPost Live are there to be a part of the crucial conversation and provide a venue for attendees to relax, connect with others and experience the power of technology.
The Huffington Post has partnered with Microsoft for a co-branded space, the Microsoft-Huffington Post Cafe, where delegates can have meetings, relax, recharge, refuel or just catch up on work throughout the week. From a HuffPost Live studio located within the Cafe, host Ahmed Shihab-Eldin will be interviewing world leaders, business executives, journalists and others about the important discussions and themes at the event, which officially opens on Wednesday, January 22. The Huffington Post and HuffPost Live's coverage can be found here.
The World Economic Forum is also serving as launch pad for THEWORLDPOST, a new online publication from the Huffington Post in partnership with the Berggruen Institute on Governance. The site went live today and replaces the World section of the Huffington Post. In addition, the content will be made available to HuffPost's 10 international editions, including France, Italy, Spain, Germany, Japan and Brazil and syndicated to print publications around the world.

AOL made news last week with Google and Yahoo! when the Commission on Presidential Debates announced the three Internet giants would combine forces to reach a massive audience with a digital initiative, "The Voice Of," an online destination for the presidential debates.
Last night, teams across AOL also collaborated to demonstrate the editorial and distribution force that AOL's combined brands can deliver. AOL.com and HuffPost Live streamed the presidential debate, providing unique coverage, commentary, analysis and opinion across AOL.com, the Huffington Post, HuffPost Live, Patch, DailyFinance and other AOL sites. More than 20 AOL brands joined this unprecedented effort, which also included more than 30 Patch live viewing parties across key battleground states, four live chatrooms on HuffPost Live with specific focus areas - Inside Politics, Comedy, Young Voters and En Español - and an undecided voter focus group with Luntz Worldwide in our AOL Studio at 770 Broadway.
Over 400,000 engaged viewers watched the livestream, and we received over 33,000 comments on The Huffington Post and HuffPost Live. We had an estimated 240 million impressions total on Twitter, where more than 30 editors shared updates from 11 different AOL and Huffington Post Twitter accounts.*
