In 2015, TCL announced a marketing partnership with Paramount Pictures in support of the theatrical release of the film “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation,” produced by and starring Tom Cruise and directed by Christopher McQuarrie. This marketing campaign included digital, print, television and outdoor assets, and TCL provided its products to support the movie during the shooting of the film. Further extending the movie tie-in, TCL packaged digital copies of the movie with the purchase of an award-winning TCL Roku TV when “Mission: Impossible – Rogue Nation” was released for home media distribution in November this year.
2015 marks the second year in a row where TCL served as the official smart TV sponsor of the Ellen DeGeneres Show. This season-long sponsorship includes multiple on-air audience giveaways and digital promotions through Ellen’s social properties.
