The 4 series TVs will arrive in 32, 49 and 50 inch sizes. WiDi technology and WiFi is still available and users can also playback media files from a USB hard drive.

The 1 and 2 series are aimed at the budget segment of the market. Most of the TVs use 720p panels but goes up to Full HD for the larger size variants.

A new Cloud TV platform offers TV apps, including Netflix, iPlayer and YouTube, and other internet services. It can be found in the 4 series and above. The Cloud TV platform integrates the TV program guide with a picture-in-picture mode. The home screen can be individualized with social media and other information, and Toshiba also offers what they call “Premium apps”. In addition, Cloud TV has a media player that can access music, pictures and video from network devices or USB devices.
