TCL has also announced the 5 Series and the company has said that this series marries superior 4K UHD picture quality with Dolby Vision HDR for a stellar imaging experience.

TCL also announced that it plans to be the first company to develop a smart soundbar under Roku's new Whole Home Entertainment Licensing Program.

But you can think of this as Roku's answer to Google Assistant and Alexa, which both allow consumers to control content on their TVs (and often the TVs themselves) if they've got a supported streaming device like a Chromecast or Fire TV, respectively.

Created by TCL, the largest distributor of Roku TV sticks in the U.S., the TCL Roku Smart Soundbar was revealed at the Consumer Electronics Show 2018 at Las Vegas and is slated to be available late 2018.

And, with more than 500,000 streaming movies and TV episodes, plus the best selection of music, sports, news, and more, TCL Roku TV is the ideal addition to any home theater. "With Roku Connect it will make it easy to add great sound to an already great TV".

Other enhancements are Wide Color with NBP Photon Technology, 240 Natural Motion technology for a smoother image, and the aforementioned Roku TV enhancements.

The 5-Series will be available this spring with sizes ranging from 43- to 65-inches. "TCL is also excited to introduce the Alto Smart Soundbar with Roku Entertainment Assistant". The new smart soundbar is expected to launch in late 2018.
