Following their unveiling at CES 2023, TCL has officially launched their Q and S-Series TVs.
“TCL has been a top 2 best–selling TV brand in the US for four consecutive years and with the incredible new products we’re launching today, I have no doubt that we’ll maintain that leadership position in the television space. Our focus on the consumer, coupled with our innovation and vertical integration advantages, has proven to be a winning formula for delivering high–performance and high-quality TVs,” said Chris Hamdorf, Senior Vice President, of TCL. “Each year we set the bar for the industry as our lineup continues to refine key advancements that we’ve pioneered. With TCL’s immersive extra–large screens and higher resolution content, consumers can replicate the same cinematic ‘field of view’ found in theatres without worrying about viewing distance. Whether it’s movies, sports, shows, or video games, TCL is poised and motivated to make TVs that will meet everyone’s entertainment needs.”
This year, TCL offers two lines, the S Class and the all-new Q Class. All the TVs are running Google TV.

One reply on “TCL’s new Q and S Class TVs are now available”
Do we know why the 85” QM8 is available in the US but not in Canada? Even on the TCL website for Canada it only shows the 65”-75” range size. I do hope they release it here too.
