What you need to know
- TCL has partnered with Google to bring Android-powered smart TVs to the U.S.
- TCL already sells popular smart TVs running the Roku platform.
- The company has drawn closer to Google in the past few months, launching its first own-branded Android-smartphones as well.
TCL today announced that it will be bringing TVs with Android TV to the United States. It's a boon for the platform as TVCL has primarily sold TVs with Roku built-in. But TCL has expanded its partnership with Google in the past few months, launching the affordable TCL 10-Series of smartphones, expanding this to Tvs makes sense.
Google's Shalini Govil-Pai, Senior Director of Product Management for Android TV, said in a press release on Friday:
TCL may have recently branched out into phones, but TVs are one of its stronger suits, and more choice in the Android TV market helps. TCL currently sells two TVs in BestBuy, ranging from 32" to 42". They'll set you back $129 and $199 respectively.
