The battle for the best media streaming device is definitely heating up, and today Google is upping the ante by announcing their own TV device, the Nexus Player, running the gorgeous new Android TV interface. We’ve been working closely with Google since before the platform was announced back in April, and we’ve continued to hone our app to ensure that it feels at home on Android TV, and that you get to enjoy the world class Plex experience that you know and love on your favorite new device.
We’re really enjoying the fresh take that Android TV brings to the table: bold, clean UI designed from the ground up for “lean back” viewing from your couch, and custom home screen recommendations based on your viewing habits are right up our alley, and they mean that Plex and Android TV are a perfect fit.
Feast your eyes on these gorgeous pixels, mortals, and welcome your new media overlord!
Edit: Barkley—along with many of you—expressed outrage that he was missing from a release post. He called his agent, his agent called his lawyer, we had a big conference call, and thankfully everything was resolved (in his favor, naturally). Feast on those big brown eyes!

Time Slice is an ongoing series of photographs by Richard Silver that explores how iconic buildings and monuments change in appearance from day into night. Silver shoots some 36 photos at intervals over several hours and then layers them into a final composition. We’ve seen a similar approach by Fong Qi Wei (and in motion), but the focus on a single structure tells an interesting story about each place, and conveys more than just a single shot. You can see more from the series here. All images courtesy the artist. (via Vacilando)
