TCL Teams Up with Winegard to Make the Split from Cable Even Easier
TCL, one of the world’s largest and America’s fastest-growing television brand, today announced a strategic partnership with Winegard Company, a pioneer in antenna design and development, to redefine the way consumers use Smart TVs. A recent recipient of Winegard’s Cord Cutter Certified Platinum Award, TCL continues to include a tuner in its critically acclaimed TCL Roku TVs as a vital supplement to streaming and a great way to access popular network TV and live sports in high definition over the air at no additional cost.
Through the collaboration, a special insert with an offer code for $20 off Winegard’s FlatWave Ultra-Thin Amplified Digital Indoor HD Antenna will come packaged in the S-Series 4K TCL Roku TV box. This popular FlatWave over-the-air antenna model (FL5500A) boasts the trusted Winegard performance, with amplified HDTV reception for a 50-mile range, revolutionary Clear Circuit Technology that boosts 100% of available signal for unprecedented range and ultra-low noise, an extra-long mini coax cable for easy positioning, and a USB power insert that connects directly to a USB port on the TCL Roku TV. Plus, the indoor antenna is reversible to match any décor in your house.
“TCL has been a leader in the smart TV category since we introduced our award-winning TCL Roku TVs in 2014 and since then, the number of cord-cutters has grown, and continues to grow, exponentially in America as cost savings and viewing flexibility become more and more important. Coupling an antenna, like Winegard’s FlatWave, with our TVs helps consumers save money by eliminating the need for a cable box and extra devices, while also enabling access to the widest variety of streaming content that viewers can watch on their own time,” said Chris Larson, Senior Vice President, TCL. “Similar to TCL, Winegard has unmatched in-house and vertically integrated capabilities to deliver high quality products with innovative technologies, and together we offer the perfect option for those looking to forgo a cable subscription in favor of an alternative wireless service.”
