    The Aeolus Robot, which got plenty of attention at this year’s CES, was shown delivering drinks and vacuuming floors during demos; its creators promise the robot will integrate with popular voice assistants. LG has shown off a robot that can act as a smart-home hub, as well as a line of robots meant for hotels, airports and other venues servicing consumers (they can do things like carry bags and groceries). And last week, Sony (SNE) announced it’s forming an R&D partnership with Carnegie Mellon related to developing cooking robots.

    Calling a spade a spade, Netflix, Inc. (NASDAQ:NFLX) is the dominant name in the over-the-top television space right now, though Sling TV, from DISH Network Corp (NASDAQ:DISH) deserves a mention. For that matter, the relatively new Vue service from Sony Corp (NYSE:SNE) has the potential to cause problems for both DISH and Netflix, as Vue offers several different bundles, all of which include some major network broadcasts (a big piece of the pie Netflix is missing).

    And yet, for as popular as those OTT choices are, they’re not necessarily great investments right now, as each alternative to traditional cable television is on the verge of a major disruption now that a new technology has been unveiled by creator Viva Entertainment Group Inc (OTCMKTS:OTTV). In short, Viva Entertainment Group will allow anyone to get into the subscription-based IPTV game with their own customized version of an over-the-top service, and even within that platform the subscriber has more choice than Sony Vue, Sling TV, or Netflix can provide.

    There are multiple advantages to this platform and arrangement, including a custom-built product that can effectively target a particular demographic. Case in point? Last week, OTTV entered a joint venture with Oi2 Media to create an OTT product catering to the Latino market. Oi2 Media is the United States’ biggest distributor of Latino-centric digital content, offering both music and television. It’s the name behind CNN en Espanol and ESPN Deportes Radio, just
