Android TV is a great system for televisions smart, but not so much on projectors. The reason for this is that this system was not yet officially support Netflix, the biggest streaming service of video in the world. Google has updated the Android TV and now Netflix is officially supported.
If we consider that the major purpose of Android TV is to have a connected system in which to reproduce content, the support for Netflix is just as essential as would be the support for WhatsApp on Android. Yes, it is not something that you use all over the world, but it is the service you are going to use most likely. Projectors with Android TV were not compatible, until now.
