If you’re in the market for a new TV and you’ve heard TCL is bringing their TVs to Canada, you’re in luck. It’s true. The brand from China has had such huge TV sales they are one of the top three big TV brands, and now you can find these great televisions at Best Buy .
TCL is one of the top 3 TV brands
Now where have you heard the name TCL before? Yes, it’s one of the fastest growing TV brands, they’ve been making TVs for three decades, and they are the third largest TV manufacturer in the world, but that’s not all they’ve done. I attended a launch event for TCL TVs back in November and discovered that the brand also owns the TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood.
The theatre formerly known as Grauman’s Chinese Theatre, built back in 1927, is now owned by TCL. In addition to that cool piece of Hollywood real estate, TCL also owns a state-of-the-art factor where they make their own TV panels and build their own TVs.
The company is ‘vertically integrated.’ That means they make every single component that goes into your TCL TV. Because they control the entire production process they can provide you with the latest technology, the highest quality product, and the best value.
Hey Canada, say hello to TCL
TCL is America’s fastest growing TV brand, and they’ve decided to bring their Roku-powered TVs to Canada. With more people cutting cable and streaming through video-on-demand services, the Roku operating system is the perfect platform for Canadian TV viewers.
I have a Roku and I love the platform. The remote has everything you need to stream video with just a touch of a button, there are always new channels to choose from, and the user interface on the screen is extremely friendly. I liked my Roku so much I purchased a Roku TV for my parents, and they love it too.
With the launch of TCL Roku TVs, it’s definitely time for us to upgrade. Here’s a look at the TCL Series 3, Series 4, and Series 6 TVs coming to Best Buy on March 1st.
TCL Series 3
The TCL Series 3 is the entry level model of TCL Roku television. You can find this LED Smart TV in an 32 inch size with 720p resolution or a 32 inch or 40 inch size with 1080p resolution.
The TCL Series 3 is an off-the-charts great value. I’ve seen this TV in person and found the picture to be crisp and clear. Thanks to 6.5ms response time and a 120Hz refresh rate with Clear Motion technology, all of the action and sports you watch will be smooth and blur free.
With the Roku operating system on board, you get intuitive channel navigation and easy access to all of your set top boxes or gaming consoles. It has Wi-Fi built in so you can stream with just a click, and this TV also has 3 HDMI inputs. That’s a big deal if you’re like me and have multiple gaming consoles to plug in.
TCL Series 4
Stepping up a bit, the TCL Roku Series 4 is 4K all the way. This amazing UHD HDR LED Smart TV comes in sizes 43, 50, 55, and 65 inches. This would be a spectacular TV for the living room or home theatre. It has TCL’s proprietary 4K Creative Pro upscaling technology to enhance your HD content to near 4K, 120Hz CMI for blur-free action, and 3 HDMI 2.0 outputs with HDCP 2.2. (1 ARC) for 4K gaming.
This TV also has the Roku operating system, and along with a user-friendly format to scroll through and select your favourite movie or TV show, every TCL Roku TV will grant you access to the free Roku remote app. Using the app you can control your Smart TV, use voice search to look for something, or listen to your TV show solo while listening through a headset.
TCL Series 6
I was in awe when I stood in front of the TCL Series 6, because it’s a seriously beautiful TV. It’s a 4K UHD HDR LED Roku Smart TV with 4K Dolby Vision HDR. With this TV you get Wi-Fi as well as Ethernet access, so you can plug your TV straight into your router.
Available in 55 and 65 inches, you get HDR with different types of tech to maximize your viewing experience including Contrast Control Zone and HDR Pro Gamma. Advanced 120Hz clear motion index makes action and sports a true pleasure to watch, and there are three HDMI 2.0 inputs with HDCP 2.2. for 4K-gaming.
This TV has a premium style too. With a brushed metal finish and jeweled power button, it looks almost as good turned off as on.
The TCL Roku Series 3, 4, and 6 are a great addition to the Canadian TV market. If you’re in the market for a new TV be sure to take a look at all of the TCL Roku TVs available now at Best Buy.
