Time to upgrade your telly? New TVs offer Freeview and Sky's best content on a budget


If you’re looking to screw a new TV to your living room wall then there are some new goggleboxes that come packed with features and content for a very low price. TCL has just announced its new range of budget-friendly televisions which are now powered by Roku.

If you weren’t aware, Roku brings easy access to all the most popular streaming platforms such as Disney+, Netflix, Amazon Prime Video and even Sky’s contract-free NOW service.

Of course, those apps all require a monthly subscription but, for those who don’t want to pay extra, Roku also offers plenty of content that can be viewed for free.

Along with including full access to Freeview Play, Roku-powered TVs also carry The Roku Channel, offering 25,000+ free movies and TV episodes to British consumers. This includes the recently launched Roku Originals, with new entertainment arriving every month.

As well that with that easy access to hours of premium and free entertainment these new TVs also feature 4K UHD displays and upscaling to improve the look of programmes broadcast at a lower resolution.

Some models also get Dolby Vision, which preserves and delivers entertainment in all its intended glory. The Google Assistant is also built-in so you can chat to your telly and get an intelligent response plus Apple fans can beam content straight from their iPhone or Mac to the big screen thanks to Apple AirPlay 2 compatibility.

TCL Roku TV models also support HomeKit, which allows users to easily and securely control Roku devices using Siri or the Home app on their Apple devices.

Speaking about the TVs, Bernie Chen, TCL’s UK Country Manager said: “I am thrilled to be launching TCL Roku TVs in the UK. The combination of our affordable premium TVs with Roku’s operating system, offers consumers excellent picture quality and ease of use, alongside a huge variety of features and streaming channels. I am confident that this partnership will help us maintain our strong UK sales growth and increase our market share.”
