What you missed last week at CordCutters.com

You can spend a fortune on a new TV. But you really don’t have to.

ccac930.png?itok=qqm_EpO3You can spend a couple thousand dollars on a TV. And if you have a couple thousand dollars to spend on a TV, by all means do it. You’ll get something pretty incredible with an OLED panel.

But for those of us who don’t have a couple thousand dollars to spend on a TV, it’s not like we have to settle for some kind of lesser class of living. You can get a really good TV for less than $1,000 these days.

I’ve spent a few months with a 55-inch TCL 6-Series. It’s $649 (retail) for the 55-inch model, and $999 for a 65-incher. 4K resolution, Dolby Vision and HD 10, and Roku built in. For a lot of folks — a whole lot of folks, seeing as how Roku TVs make up a quarter of the smart TV market these days — that’s going to be plenty.

No, it’s not the same as Android TV or Apple TV, though you certainly can plug in a box (and set up the TV to use it by default) if you want to. It’s not quite as quick, perhaps, Roku just has a different feel about it. But if your goal is to just watch your shows on a good (again, really good) TV for the price with a smart system that is easy to use, I’d have a hard time recommending something else at this point.
