Dish Network confirmed that it has soft-launched the Evolve, a “set-back box” for hotels and other segments of the hospitality industry that is powered by Android TV.

TechHive was first to report on it, noting that the Evolve was designed and developed by Dish and manufactured by LG Electronics. Dish, which has a hotel and hospitality-focused business, said it’s the one selling it.

A Dish official said that the Evolve, which can be hidden behind an HDTV, connects to the company’s SMARTBOX, high-density SD and HD video distribution system tailored for the hospitality channel, and supports live TV, an interactive program guide, and Chromecast built-in, which lets users stream content from their mobile devices to the TV screen.
