Roku TV launches in Germany
September 1, 2022
Roku has announced the arrival of Roku TV in Germany, with Metz blue and TCL as the first partners to launch Roku TV models.
The launch follows Roku’s entry into the market last year with its streaming players. From October, consumers will be able to purchase a Roku TV model from Metz blue or TCL, in sizes varying between 32” and 65” in HD, 4K and 4K QLED.
Great TV Experience for Consumers
Roku TV models offer consumers a robust selection of streaming entertainment. On the customisable home screen, all traditional inputs and streaming channels come together, allowing users to personalise their TV the way they want it. Roku customised the tuner and the live TV experience for the German market, enabling consumers to connect to satellite, cable, or an antenna for live TV.
“People transition more of their entertainment time to streaming, while continuing to watch a significant amount of broadcast TV, so we are excited to launch Roku TV in Germany and offer a great experience for both,” said Arthur van Rest, VP International at Roku. “German viewers want the best possible TV experience, something that includes all their favourite entertainment, is easy to use, and gets them to what they want to watch as quickly as possible.”
With a Roku TV from either Metz blue or TCL consumers get access to the Roku Channel Store, which offers thousands of free and paid streaming channels. To discover something new to watch, consumers can leverage the built-in universal search across the tchannels, with results ranked by price. Roku TV models work with the free Roku mobile app, which can be used as a remote control, for voice search and control, and for private listening.
Roku TV models are also compatible with various voice assistants, including Alexa, Google Assistant, and Siri. To share media from a mobile device to a Roku TV, consumers can use the free Roku mobile app or mirror their screen using Airplay 2 or Miracast.
