TCL has released two new 4K Ultra HD Roku TVs with diagonals of 55-inch and 65-inch and they are sold for $599.99 and $999.99, respectively, after they were unveiled at the Consumer Electronics Show, alongside other four models which will deliver high-quality entertainment via Roku’s streaming media platform. The new TVs will hit the stores in April, but can be pre-ordered from Amazon.
TCL is the third biggest TV manufacturer in the world and recently, the company has released new premium P130 series, which have screen sizes of 43-inch ($499.99), 50-inch ($599.99), 55-inch ($699.99), and 65-inch ($1,099.99), and of course, they come with an advanced remote control. Chris Larson, vice president of sales and marketing at TCL, said that “The time is right to bring these new 4K TVs to consumers as the 4K market has matured quickly over the last year, with new standards set in place and 4K content creation increasing”. The company is continuously improving its products, according to the market demands, and nowadays, most of the TV manufacturers are focusing on delivering Ultra HD picture quality.
The new 4K Roku TVs are powered by a quad-core processor and they’re benefiting from the proprietary Creative Pro 4K UHD Upscaling Engine, which allows the users to view 1080p HD content in almost a 4K quality. Not all shows will support the Super HD option, but the users can look for UHD content on Roku’s 4K Spotlight Channel, offered by these streaming services: YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Video and Vudu.
On the Home Screen, the users will navigate through the 3000 supported streaming channels and they will have the option to connect a game console, a Blu-ray player or cable box.
With the Roku mobile app, any iOS or Android user can turn his/her smartphone/tablet into a remote and control the TCL TV sets. These TVs have four HDMI 2.0 inputs and offer dual-band Wi-Fi and ethernet.
