TCL will be releasing its very first Google TV starting in the United States and then later on in other parts of the world.
As part of its ongoing efforts to partner with leading smart platforms in order to ensure access to the best possible content range for its customers, TCL has announced that it will be rolling out its first Google TV in 2021.
Coming to the US first, followed by other territories (though no details were offered), TCL’s Google TVs will not just be a marker for entry level models but will marry TCL’s industry-leading display technologies, such as Mini-LED, 8K and QLED, with Google’s new entertainment experience. The main goal will be to combine TCL’s image quality with easy to find and personalised content.
TCL Google TVs will bring together movies, shows, live TV and more from across apps and subscriptions and organise them for each user. It will offer personalised recommendations so TCL users can discover new things to watch. Users can even ask Google to find movies and shows, answer questions, and control smart home devices with their voice on TCL’s big screens.
Kevin Wang, CEO of TCL Industrial Holdings and TCL Electronics, said, “The introduction of TCL Google TVs will take our partnership with Google to the next level.” He went on to add, “Our theme at CES this year is ‘Experience More’ and by combining cutting-edge displays with smart and convenient content powered by Google, I am confident we will allow people around the world to do just that in 2021.”
Shobana Radhakrishnan, Senior Engineering Director, Google TV added, “We are excited to partner with TCL to bring Google TV to customers around the world. Google TV is a more helpful and delightful TV experience that helps users find the content they love.”
TCL marks the second globally recognised TV brand that will use Google TV as its smart TV OS after Sony announced recently that it too would be using Google TV on its new Bravia XR TVs in 2021.
