China's SARFT (State Administration of Radio, Film and Television) launched the first home-developed smart TV operating system TVOS 1.0 in late February 2014. Claimed to be interoperable with Linux and Android systems, TVOS 1.0 will help vendors migrate existing platforms and applications seamlessly to the new operating system. In addition, the low transition cost is expected to attract more vendors to join the TVOS 1.0 ecosystem. As TVOS 1.0 is backed by the Chinese government and the SARFT has been an influential government agency in the Chinese TV industry's development, the report will look into the impact and potential issues of TVOS 1.0.
