TCL has announced a refresh to its popular 6-Series Roku TV and introducing their new 5-Series to Canada.

TCL first launched their Roku TVs in Canada back in 2018 but their Canadian TV lineup hasn’t been updated since then.

“With more people relying on their TVs more than ever before, TCL is proud to have an advantage in manufacturing high-quality televisions packed with the latest technology. As a vertically integrated company, we can use those advantages to continue bringing premium products – like the 5- and 6-Series – to market at a value that can be appreciated by us all,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. “As consumers are enjoying ever-larger screen sizes, picture performance is becoming even more important. TCL launched the world’s first big-screen TV with Quantum Dot over five years ago and has been refining the performance and cost-efficiency since then. Having QLED featured in two of the four series of televisions we offer this year, along with an array of other groundbreaking features, is critical to our users’ enjoyment we are excited for these models to find their way into our customers’ homes.”

Both the new 6-Series and 5-Series have 4K Ultra HD resolution and using Quantum Dot (QLED) colour technology, which should provide better brightness and a wide colour volume.

According to TCL, QLED can “deliver deeply saturated reds, stunning greens and spectacular blues without the limitations of lower colour volume or shorter life found in other colour technologies.”

In addition to QLED, both TV models pack Dolby Vision HDR HDR10 and HLD HDR technologies.

To set the new 6-Series apart, the new model has mini-LED backlight technology for “uncompromised contrast and brilliantly smooth illumination.” The mini-LEDs help power 240 Contrast Control Zones to help add more depth to the picture.

The exterior of the new 6-Series has a brushed metal design along with 2-position configurable legs (for smaller TV stands and consoles) and cable management in each leg.

For ports, there are four HDMI ports (with HDMI 4 being the eARC port for soundbars) with support for Auto Low Latency Mode (ALLM), cable in, Ethernet, USB, AV, headphone jack and Optical Audio Out.

The TCL 6-Series is also the first TV to offer THX Certified Game Mode which adds features like Variable Refresh Rate, Auto Game Mode and more. The new 6-Series should be perfect for the upcoming Xbox Series X and PS5 consoles coming this Holiday season.
