Roku TV launched in partnership with TCL and Hisense

At CES 2014 today, Roku, the U.S.-based digital media products provider, has announced its upcoming Roku TVs in partnership with TCL and Hisense. The news marks the company's expansion from mere streaming players to actual TVs.

"Roku TV removes all of the complicated layers and menus, and unnecessary features and settings that plague smart TVs today, and instead provides a Roku home screen that brings together all content sources," says Anthony Wood, the founder and CEO of Roku.

The said Roku TVs will be available this fall in the U.S. and Canada. They will vary in sizes - ranging from 32-inches to 55-inches - and similar to the company's streaming players, they will also have full access to the Roku Channel Store's more than 30,000 movies and 1,000 channels.

TCL and Hisense are a good choice for Roku. Both companies are considered to be in the top five list of the best TV manufacturers in the world today, with TCL in the third place shipping roughly 12 million TVs in 2012. Hisense is the fifth largest global TV manufacturer with 9 millions TVs shipped in 2012.

Pricing has yet to be announced.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
