Roku TV Brands

Just a general question, not sure anyone know. But why hasn’t Vizio , Sony , or LG release TVs with integrated Roku OS yet? 

I like the TCL Roku TVs I have now, but I would love to buy non Chinese branded Roku TV.

 

has Roku attempted to partner with these guys yet? Anyone know the reasoning they haven’t integrated them yet?

LG made a Roku tv model.

Re: Roku TV Brands

Large well-established companies are typically willing to look at other companies as component suppliers, but typically unwilling to let a component supplier directly affect their UI in any way. Ie: they've got people who do that, their UI is part of their brand etc.  On the other hand, if you're a young hungry company and someone offers you a software stack and now all you have to do is source a screen and some other generic TV components, that's pretty attractive.

Sony is deep in the Android TV OS, so they'd never consider it. Vizio would be a good prospect, but I suspect that Roku doesn't reach out to the manufacturers. The TV makers probably come to them. 

I've had my Sharp 4K Roku TV since about October 2017, and it's been flawless. I just wish there was a Roku TV remote that had a numeric keypad for direct channel access.

Re: Roku TV Brands

Cool thanks for the insights guys!

 

LG did make one way back, but doesn’t seem like they do anymore.

 

I think Vizio would be a perfect partner for Roku as well, their OS is junk Smiley Sad
