2018 TCL 4K HDR Roku TVs get Dolby Vision, Roku Assistant, contrast zones

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

TCL has established a name for itself as the most value-for-money 4K television brand, and at CES 2018, the TV brand showcased a revision to its highly successful P series, dubbed the TCL 6 Series.

It keeps everything that made the P series great, namely full-array local dimming, compatibility with both HDR10 and Dolby Vision HDR formats, and Roku's excellent Smart TV system. The TVs span two different series: the 6-Series and the 5-Series.

Stepping into the more traditional territory, the C6 series of TVs all feature Android TV, 4K HDR displays and a Harman Kardon audio system with an integrated Circular soundbar at the base of the screen. Assuming everything goes according to schedule, that will be happening closer to the end of this year. The 6-Series models offer feature HDR Pro Gamma Control and the iPQ Engine, the ability to control zone contrast for better light-to-dark areas, and optimized DCI-P3 color space coverage.

Other features that span the series include 802.11ac WiFi, Ethernet, a trio of HDMI 2.0a ports, wide color with NBP Photon tech, and what TCL describes as an "advanced remote". It comes in sizes from 43- to 65-inches and also ships in spring for as-yet-undisclosed prices. All the above TVs will be available this spring season, while the soundbar will likely launch later on this year. "TCL is also excited to introduce the Alto Smart Soundbar with Roku Entertainment Assistant".

"We're working smarter throughout the company and with our partners to make sure people understand that there's a whole new level of home entertainment out there within reach", said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL North America.

TCL is the largest distributor of Roku TVs in the United States and the largest TV manufacturer in China. TCL ended 2017 as the #3 smart TV brand in the US, with all of its smart TVs powered by the Roku OS. "By extending always-on voice and audio capabilities to the TV for more control and entertainment functionality, you'll enjoy a more immersive and convenient home theater", the company concluded.
