Westinghouse Digital, one of the leading LED TV manufacturers in the U.S., announced a new line of LED TVs for 2013 that are Roku Ready® for an unmatched combination of entertainment choices, convenience and value. The new line will be introduced at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, NV, January 8-11 in the Las Vegas Hotel, Hospitality Suite 360.
The Westinghouse Digital Roku Ready line of LED TVs feature the Mobile High Definition Link (MHL), which allows users to simply plug in a Roku Streaming Stick™, a flash-stick sized device that features the popular Roku streaming platform. Within moments, the TV is recognized by the consumer’s home Wi-Fi network allowing the user to connect to the world of content provided by Roku.
“The new Westinghouse TVs with Roku are designed to be future-proof,” said Rey Roque, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Westinghouse Digital. “Westinghouse Digital believes MHL-Compliant displays are the future of the connected TV market. Consumers are no longer forced to buy a smart TV only to have it become outdated two years later when new technology is released. With The Roku Streaming Stick, the consumer can simply upgrade a fairly inexpensive piece of hardware instead of being forced to spend hundreds of dollars to buy a new HDTV in order to gain the latest and greatest streaming options.”
In addition to the 60-inch IPTV introduction, Westinghouse Digital will also introduce a full line of edge-lit LED TVs for 2013 at CES, with models ranging from 28 to 60-inches, as well as a new series of 4K UHDTV models.
