Roku was shipping players years before Android TV existed. As far as I know, in the US, Roku has (by a wide margin) the most people using its streaming OS. In other parts of the world, Tizen, and WebOS are dominant. FireOS, and Playstation are also significant worldwide players and AndroidTV is popular in Europe.
I’m still not sure I understand your original question about lying and search results though. Streaming is a somewhat more complicated world than the days of analog TV. However, availability of TV programs is much higher than ever. Even back in the golden age of TV, we had to deal with PAL vs SECAM vs NTSC, recorded onto multiple tape and disc formats. Fortunately, all the hardware these days is incredibly cheap, so if ~50 times as much TV as you could ever watch is not enough, you can pick up a few more streaming players and make it at least 70 times. Each streaming player costs less that what a single movie on a Laserdisc used to cost.
