Roku Entertainment Assistant, a voice assistant for entertainment, will let customers launch podcasts, movies and TV shows from their favorite services with a simple voice command.

Others said that Hisense are a struggling brand in the U.S. and Europe and had no choice but to aquire the Toshiba brand in an effort to take on arch rivals TCL and Sharp who have accused Hisense of selling questionable TV products.

Though full specs have not been announced yet, the Roku Smart Sound Bar will use Roku Connect to pair with other compatible AV products for a whole home entertainment solution. "TCL has confirmed that the 85" Premium QLED Private Theatre X6 TV, QUHD Android TV C6 series and QUHD Android TV P9 series are all coming to Australia, as a starter.

The all-new 6-Series and 5-Series are part of the award-winning TCL Roku TV family. TCL ended 2017 as the #3 smart TV brand in the USA, with all of its smart TVs powered by the Roku OS.

TCL's rise in popularity has been impressive, but not without reason. Like the upcoming soundbar, both TV lines feature Roku OS and Roku Connect, making for some strong synergy. "With Roku Connect it will make it easy to add great sound to an already great TV". "With 96 zones for the 55" 6-Series TV and 120 zones for the 65" model, TCL's Contrast Control Zone technology identifies bright and dark areas in each frame of content and controls each zone within the frame to yield striking contrast between light and dark areas.

TCL's Roku TVs are very successful, so it's not too surprising to see the closely-aligned companies collaborating on the first soundbar to feature the Entertainment Assistant recently announced by Roku.

The 5-Series will be available this spring with sizes ranging from 43 to 65 inches.
