RTVE launches pioneering Google Glass live TV app

Friday 20 June 2014 | 09:24 CET | News
Spain's state broadcaster RTVE has launched an app that enables users to watch live TV with Google Glass. RTVE worked with the Spanish start-up Droiders to develop what the creators claim is the first application in the world that allows users of the augmented reality glasses to watch live TV. Although Google Glass is not yet officially on sale in Spain, the app was launched to coincide with the coronation of Spain's Felipe VI on 19 June. A live feed of all of RTVE's channels – La 1, La 2, 24 Horas and the sports channel TDP – is available via the app.
