We’ll all spending a little more time inside the house at the moment. If you’ve got an incredibly long list of shows and films to binge on, you might be thinking about upgrading your television. Thankfully, Argos has blockbuster deal on a 50-inch Smart TV that could be just the ticket.
Built by Chinese brand Hisense, this 50-inch 4K TV is powered by Roku software. That means you’ll be able to run all of the same applications as Roku’s hugely-popular streaming dongles, including the likes of Netflix, Amazon Prime Video, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All4, Disney+, NOW TV, and Apple TV+ to name a few.
It also means you’ll have access to The Roku Channel, which is completely free to watch. You’ll be able to start streaming Hollywood blockbusters and television series without paying a penny. Better yet, Roku won’t even force you to sign-up with an account to get access to the hours of entertainment available on the Roku Channel.
At launch, Roku Channel includes more than 10,000 free movies, documentaries, and television episodes. The movies will be available for a limited time, with Roku refreshing the selection regularly. TV shows will be available for longer than movies – to give viewers a chance to catch every episode before the title leaves the service.
The 50-inch Roku Smart TV also supports High Dynamic Range (HDR), which is now supported on Sky Q boxes, which can display a much higher level of contrast between light and dark areas of the screen – so you won’t lose any detail in a movie scene when someone is in a darkened room, looking out of a small window to the brightly lit outdoors.
Hisense’s 50-inch Roku Smart LED TV is currently on-sale for £299 from Argos – the lowest price it has ever dropped to. Of course, since this HDR-compliant telly is exclusive to Argos, there’s no chance of another retailer forcing them into a price war anytime soon, but this remains an aggressively-low price tag for such a large, feature-packed TV.
Argos is currently offering customers the option to Click and Collect in local Sainsbury’s stores, which remain open despite the current restrictions on lockdown. Of course, there are also delivery options available too.
