Today Roku and JVC announced that they have teamed up to launch a new line of Roku TVs. The new TVs from JVC will hit Roku stores later this year.
“Roku is America’s #1 streaming platform because it is incredibly easy to use and offers access to countless movies and TV episodes all from the home screen,” said John Araki, Chief Technology Officer of JVC. “We are looking forward to marrying our longstanding history of innovation with Roku’s popular smart TV platform as we aim to improve our customers’ everyday life with smartly designed products making life a little more fun.”
“For more than 90 years JVC has been delivering quality video and audio products and we look forward to working with MTC to grow the JVC smart TV presence in the US,” said Chas Smith, general manager of Roku TV & Players. “We know most TV manufacturers will license a TV OS and are proud of our low-cost purpose-built solution and the level of collaboration and support that we offer our partners while delivering a superior experience to consumers.”
At this time JVC did not announce any pricing or details about the new Roku TVs. JVC joins a growing list of TV manufacturers using Roku as their OS. Recently it was announced that Philips, Magnavox, and RCA would be making Roku TVs joining TCL, Insignia, and more.
