There is always danger in buying a smart TV. TV manufacturers often fail to update the OS on their TVs sometimes leaving TV owners with a bricked TV.
That is why recently we have been recommending Roku TVs over other TV brands, and today Roku showed why the Roku TV brand is the best TV brand to get. It was announced yesterday Haier would switch OS from Roku TV to a new Google OS with Google Cast.
For most TV manufacturers that would mean the likely death to any future updates of the current TV OS; however, Roku came out and said it will continue to provide software updates to Haier-branded Roku TVs.
“Roku TV offers a superior streaming experience over other smart TVs since they regularly receive software updates with new features and enhancements and new streaming channels, making the TV experience incredibly satisfying for consumers long after purchase.” Said Said Tricia Mifsud VP of Communications for Roku in a statement to Cord Cutters News.
Having smart TVs abandoned by TV manufacturers or app developers is commonplace. Back in 2015 owners of Sony and Panasonic TVs—some with TVs just two years old—found out that YouTube would soon no longer work.
Instead of relying on TV manufacturers to update the TVs with Roku TVs Roku plays a big part in the update. That makes the Roku TVs some of the most updated smart TVs sold and why I recommend them over other smart TV brands.
