TCL releases its new 8-series of Roku-enabled TVs through Best Buy
TCL has partnered with Best Buy through which to sell its latest top-flight TVs. Like the rest of this OEM's 2019 big screens, they come with the Roku platform built in. This 8-series of QLED panels can thus access over 5,000 streaming channels featuring about half a million movies and individual show episodes.
The TCL 8-series Roku TVs are 4K HDR displays that deliver Dolby Vision, Dolby Atmos for their audio and (according to their maker, at least) 100% of the DCI-P3 color gamut. The OEM asserts that its "quantum contrast" technology puts these TVs on par with OLED panels in this respect. Contrast, in addition to 4K upscaling and HDR are optimized using the machine-learning-informed TCL AiPQ Engine.
The 8-series also boasts minimal bezels and an Auto Game Mode that limits input lag when a compatible console is plugged into one of these devices. It comes in 65- and 75-inch variants priced at US$1999 and $2999 respectively. They will be released to Best Buy stores, as well as its website, later in October 2019.
