TCL brings televisions with Android TV to the U.S. starting at $129

Android TV looks to be headed toward the spotlight once again. We recently obtained exclusive images of Google’s upcoming Android TV dongle, which would be the company’s first hardware for the platform in 6 years. In other Android TV-related news, TCL is finally bringing their televisions to the U.S. market.

TCL already sells smart Roku TVs in the U.S., but its Android TV offerings have only been available in other markets such as Europe. Now, the company is bringing a pair of televisions with Android TV built-in to the U.S. market. The TVs have identical designs and start at just $129.99.
