Problems with internet TV
Basic free to air TV reception excellent, but internet TV very disappointing. Freeview (green button) works OK on SBS on demand and ABC Iview but has never worked on 7 plus or 9 now. Selected shows simply do not load Same thing with individual channels selection with red button. Have contacted TCL who suggested a reset, which made no difference. Have given up. I think there is some sort of system incompatibility at work here. Al
Adequate Enough but is Severely Lacking
The TV in itself is suitable for everything you would expect. You can watch local television programs, connect multiple devices via HDMI, browse media files on external devices and a fair few other cool things too. However, this TV is missing some extremely necessary features that make it easier for more experienced users to play around with. The TV is built on proprietary firmware running on Linux, containing the bare minimum for anyone wanting to experience owning a "smart" TV. The app store is absolutely substandard. It contains scarcely any...actual useful applications, and it is almost never updated. The user interface is slow, clunky and the design is average. The UI does not compete at all with some of the more genuine TV producers, like LG, Samsung and ect. Being run on a standard build software, the TV cannot install external programs that may enhance or customize the way the TV looks or feels. It is frustrating owning a TV that is extremely lacking in customization and usability. However, ultimately I must say that beggars can't be choosers, and that I will learn to go with the Android TV range in the future for a better experience.
I have purchased this TV in Nov after I shifted to Melbourne. There was offer in Harvey Norman and I can say it's best choose I made between Heinse and TCL. No issues till now. This is smart TV and also has Netflix support through pre-installed app. Mobile cast also works excellent and is handy.
