TCL recently showcased their high-end TV models designated for the European and Global markets, but they also have a big impact on the U.S. TV market. With aggressive pricing and advanced capabilities, such as QLED, mini-LED, and affordable 8K, TCL is one of the top-selling brands available. 

TRIVIA: TCL owns the naming rights to the former famed Grauman’s Chinese Theater in Hollywood.

Also, for the U.S., TCL offers TV models that incorporate the Roku OS platform, bringing access to over 5,000 channels of streaming content without viewers having to connect an external streaming stick or box to the TV.

Tip: TCL also offers a line of TVs that incorporate the Google TV platform as well, although implementation has been a little “rocky”.

For 2022, TCL has announced new 5 and 6 series 4K UHD Roku TV models. The Roku OS provides all of the capabilities of Roku’s other streaming devices, including their streaming sticks and smart soundbars (streambars). Of course, having Roku built-in isn’t the only reason to consider these sets.
