CORONA, Calif., April 27, 2016 - TCL®, the fastest growing TV brand in North America, and the award-winning TCL Roku® Smart TV platform will be adding Comcast’s Xfinity TV Partner App to its streaming content lineup. In a recent announcement made by Comcast and Roku Inc., the two companies shared details about the Xfinity TV Partner app, which will be designed specifically for Roku® TVs™, including the newly announced TCL 4K UHD Roku TVs and other TCL Roku TV models.
Comcast and Time Warner, two of the largest cable providers, allow customers to access their subscription services on TCL Roku TVs through an app, rather than a cable box. Comcast's Xfinity Partner app will add more popular programming to TCL Roku TVs, which already feature the largest selection of streaming content of any smart TV - more than 300,000 movies and television shows on 3,000 plus channels. Without the need for a set-top box, TCL Roku TVs save consumers the cost and clutter of additional hardware.
“TCL is dedicated to providing the easiest way to access all your favorite content through our innovative portfolio of TCL Roku TVs,” said Chris Larson, vice president, sales and marketing, TCL. “Whether you’re a cord cutter looking for the most streaming channels or a cable subscriber that wants all that streaming content and the ability to get the most out of your cable subscription, TCL Roku TV delivers a great experience."
Comcast's Xfinity Partner app gives their customers even more options when it comes to consuming the content they love, anywhere and anytime. The app is expected to be available later this year and will provide customers with access to their subscribed programming, including local broadcast, cable and premium networks, Public, Educational and Governmental (PEG) channels, as well as their cloud DVR recordings.
TCL, one of the world’s best-selling TV brands, introduced the first TCL Roku TV in August 2014 combining TCL’s TV design with the Roku O/S. The result is an award-winning smart TV that provides a simple, easy to use experience unlike other smart TVs. The first generation TCL Roku TVs launched to industry acclaim, receiving the coveted Editors’ Choice award and Best of 2014 TV award from PC Magazine.
