  • TCL 6-series Roku TV promises great picture for a low price

Like its predecessor the 6-series comes with a voice-capable remote, and later in 2018 Roku will debut its own digital assistant to take full advantage of voice commands.

Created by TCL, the largest distributor of Roku TV sticks in the USA, the TCL Roku Smart Soundbar was revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 at Las Vegas and is slated to be available late 2018.

CES 2018 has mostly been about TVs and displays with companies introducing new and interesting innovations in the lineup. The Smart Soundbar will be part of TCL's new Alto line of audio products. The Dolby Vision HDR TVs' HDR Performance Package Pro set features the following: Contrast Control Zone technology - a local dimming solution that ups the zone number to 96 from 72 on the smaller set and to 120 zones on the larger, the iPQ engine (eliminating the need for custom tuning); and HDR Pro Gamma tone map technology, for more accurate detail reproduction. When connected to a TCL Roku TV, voice controls can be used to turn on the TV. "TCL has confirmed that the 85" Premium QLED Private Theatre X6 TV, QUHD Android TV C6 series and QUHD Android TV P9 series are all coming to Australia, as a starter.

The Chinese TV manufacturer had a successful year in 2017, releasing several excellent Roku TV models at competitive price points that put the company in the spotlight of a stage that is only getting more and more crowded. In addition, TCL Roku TVs will gain access to powerful new features-Roku Connect and Roku Entertainment Assistant that Roku plans to release in a software update later this year to the Roku operating system. TCL ended 2017 as the #3 smart TV brand in the USA, with all of its smart TVs powered by the Roku OS.

"Roku TV is growing fast in popularity, and TCL is a key partner who is instrumental in its success", said Roku CEO Anthony Wood. Like the upcoming soundbar, both TV lines feature Roku OS and Roku Connect, making for some strong synergy.

Apart from these TVs, TCL at CES 2018 also announced a new smart soundbar, called the TCL Alto Smart Soundbar, featuring the Roku voice assistant. "With Roku Connect it will make it easy to add great sound to an already great TV".

The 5-Series will be available this spring with sizes ranging from 43- to 65-inches. The new smart soundbar is expected to launch in late 2018.
