Vizio is launching a red TV to help fight AIDS

08 Nov 2018 | Rasmus Larsen |

Vizio is launching a red TV under the ‘(Product) RED’ campaign to help fight AIDS, with a minimum of 10 percent of the price being contributed. It is a 55-inch Vizio P-Series model with Dolby Vision.

Vizio (Product) RED TV

There have been several (Product) Red consumer electronics devices launched over the years, most notably Apple iPhone models. This is the first TV that we are aware of launched as part of the campaign to help fight HIV and AIDS in Africa.

Besides contributing to a good cause, the frame in deep red is a breath of fresh air on a TV market that can often feel a little conservative in terms of design approaches.

It is certainly not a bad TV either. It is part of the Vizio’s P series of LCD TVs. It offers 4K resolution, HDR support (HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision), full array local dimming with 56 zones, and access to popular apps such as Netflix and YouTube via Vizio’s SmartCast OS. It has built-in Chromecast and support for Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant.

It will be sold for $800 through vizio.com and ship in 2 weeks from now, with a minimum of 10 percent of the purchase price being contributed. More information is available on red.org.
