This journey has been very exciting and it gives us great pleasure to exclusively launch this new series premium smart TVs by Vu on our platform today."
The key feature of this range is the smart connectivity, which lets you access the Internet through a built-in Web browser, mirror your smartphone screen, and access a small range of applications that deliver content and information over the Internet directly to your TV. Pre-installed and supported applications on the TVs include Netflix, YouTube, Facebook, and AccuWeather, among others. Additionally, the range will also feature direct access buttons for Netflix and YouTube on the remote itself, similar to the Vu Smart TV range that was launched in January this year.
