RCA unveils its first TVs with Google's Android TV

26 Jan 2016 | Rasmus Larsen |

Four new Ultra HD TVs bearing the RCA brand have been announced. These are RCA’s first TVs to feature Google’s Android TV operating system.

Four new UHD TVs

South Korean company Activeon bought the rights to the RCA brand in 2010 and has steadily been ramping up its efforts to sell RCA-branded TVs in the US.

This year, four RCA TVs ranging from 50 to 75 inch sizes will be available from major retailers in the US. All four TVs will feature Ultra HD resolution and HDMI 2.0 (with HDCP 2.2.) ports as well as HEVC and VP9 decoding.

All four TVs will also feature Google’s Android TV operating system, which “we consider the most robust smart TV solution,” a spokesperson for RCA said to Twice. Android TV currently offers more than 1200 apps and games from the Google Play store. Chromecast functionality is built-in. RCA was one of the new partners for Android TV announced at CES 2016.

RCA TVs with HDR support are planned for the second half of 2016.

The 50” XLD50G60RQ ($699), 55” XLD55G65RQ ($799), and 65” XLD65G65RQ ($1,099) will ship in April. The 75” XLD75G65RQ ($1,699) will ship later this year. RCA TVs are sold through retailers such as Best Buy, Walmart, Sears, Kmart, Target, and Frys.
