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.
