With more movies going straight to stream concurrently with theater releases, TCL wants to give consumers a way to improve their home theater experience. This week, the company unveiled its new XL Collection of TVs over 80 inches and with some new features.
Along with being the largest screens available from TCL, the new lineup is also made up of the largest Roku TV models on the market globally.
The XL Collection includes three 85” models that will roll out this year and “will feature performance levels for every kind of home theater.” The 85” 4-Series TCL Roku TV offers 4K HDR streaming. The 85” 4K HDR Roku TV with QLED brings wide color technology picture quality. And the ultimate 85” 8K TV features TCL’s highest performance display technologies.
“In 2020, sales of big-screen TVs delivered significant growth – nearly doubling 2019 – with even more growth expected in 2021 as many consumers choose to invest in their home entertainment systems for premium content. Never before have first-run movies been released by streaming platforms at the same time as their theater debut, like Godzilla vs. Kong, which premiered at the TCL Chinese Theatre and HBO Max last month. Even though we’re finally seeing theaters open up, people have discovered the joy and simplicity of watching blockbuster movies at home,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL.
To create a true movie going experience, TCL says sitting about six feet back from one the TVs from the. XL Collection will deliver the same 60-degree field of view that is available from watching a film on a theater screen from middle row center seats.
“TCL’s XL Collection represents this next stage in the TV industry – large-size, powerful televisions that deliver premier movie-going experiences in the comfort and safety of your own living room – and we’re excited for users to get back that cinematic magic. Being one of only three global TV brands with full vertical integration, TCL continues to expand its big-screen production capacity to make the largest television screens with best-in-class imaging technology more accessible than ever. Thus, allowing TCL to maintain its status of number two selling brand of TVs in the United States and drive even more success.”
