All TCL 4K TV models include a powerful quad-core processor and feature Ultra HD picture quality with more than eight million pixels for enhanced clarity and detail. The new TVs also include the proprietary TCL Creative Pro 4K UHD Upscaling Engine, which allows consumers to view 1080p HD content in near 4K quality.
Discovering 4K content is fast and easy with Roku’s 4K Spotlight Channel. The channel features a curated selection of great 4K content from a variety of popular streaming channels and is updated with new content on a regular basis. A 4K UHD category is also included to enable consumers to access nearly a dozen streaming services that offer 4K entertainment including Amazon Video, Netflix, VUDU, YouTube, UltraFlix and more. Additional streaming services offering 4K content are expected to be added in the future.
The 4K TCL Roku TV models feature a personalized Home Screen that places streaming channels alongside consumers’ other TV entertainment choices, such as a game console, cable box or Blu-ray player. Consumers no longer have to navigate complicated menus or cycle through inputs to switch between their favorite entertainment. Additionally, TCL integrated dual-band Wi-Fi and Ethernet for blazing fast streaming performance in the UP130 models as well as four HDMI 2.0 inputs, including the latest HDCP 2.2 standard, to easily watch Ultra HD content from the newest UHD Blu-ray players and future devices.
