CES kicked off yesterday with the official press day. Now we get a look at everything happening.

JBL Android TV Link Sound Bar

The new JBL Link View with Android TV will also have built-in Google Home. This will allow you to use your voice to control your TV even if you do not have your TV remote in hand. Launching apps, switching channels, and more can all be done through the JBL sound bar.

You can also use your JBL Link View without turning on the TV. Your JBL Link View can play music apps or let you listen to an audiobook just by asking it to play iHeartRadio, for example.

8K Roku TVs & 75″ Roku TVs

Yesterday at CES TCL and Roku announced a new 75″ 4K HDR Roku TV as part of their popular 6-Series line. This new 75″ Roku TV builds on the already popular 55″ and 65″ TCL 6-Series Roku TV line.

TCL also announced plans to roll out a new 8-Series Roku TV with 8K support this year. These new TVs will offer 8K resolution in screen sizes of 75″ and larger. They will also offer a powerful upscaling performance to skillfully convert today’s 4K and full HD resolution content that delivers a new sense of depth and clarity. The new 8-Series line will also support the latest HDMI standards allowing these 8K TV models to be ready for the next stage of the 8K content evolution as new devices come to market that are ready to deliver 8K content.
