Android TV Supports x86 PCs Now, Unofficially Though
If you have one of those really small form factor, USB PC sticks lying around and going to waste you can now use that to get Android TV on your display. This is not supported by Google though and is unofficial, of course. You can now have Android TV on any AMD or Intel powered PC. Have fun if you are into this kind of thing.

Anyone can download an app on their PC without breaking a sweat but can you claim to have run Android TV on our PC? Food for thought people. Hacks and tricks like these have made our world a better place after all.
