JVC Roku TV Models Launch Nationwide at Currys

LONDON, UK — Today, Roku, the TV streaming pioneer, announced a range of new Roku TV models with Currys-owned brand JVC. Combining quality hardware with the user-friendly Roku operating system (OS), the new smart TVs deliver a seamless streaming experience at competitive prices starting from £169.99.

Ranging from 24” to 43”, the new JVC Roku TV models come in both HD and Full HD resolution with superior HDR10 picture quality.

“The Roku OS delivers a smart TV experience like no other, with features that make it easier, faster, and more affordable for consumers to watch what they love,” said Bart Bomers, VP EMEA at Roku. “It is not without reason that Roku is the #1 TV streaming platform by hours streamed in the U.S., Canada, and Mexico*, and our partnership with Currys extends our commitment to bringing our popular platform to more people in the U.K.”

Roku TV models come with a huge selection of entertainment to stream, or watch live through an integrated Freeview tuner, and all the most popular local and global apps, including BBC iPlayer, ITVX, Channel 4, My5, Netflix, YouTube, Disney+, Prime Video, Apple TV+, Paramount+, and more. From today, Roku users can also enjoy a 30-day-free trial of ITVX Premium and enjoy upcoming shows including “Big Brother,” “Archie,” and “The Winter King ” ad-free and on-demand, alongside all BritBox UK content.

Roku TV models are designed to put users in control with a simple and customisable home screen. With Roku Search, it’s easy to search across streaming apps to find shows and movies available for free, or see results ranked by price. Users can interact with their Roku TV models in the way that suits them – using the simple remote, voice control, or the free mobile app, with automatic software updates that ensure the TVs get even better over time.

Vision Expert at Currys, Paul Slater commented, “We are thrilled to announce the launch of Roku Operating System within our JVC TVs. I’m confident this new exciting partnership will not only complement our existing portfolio, but further strengthen our offering of customer focused smart TVs”.

With the launch of JVC Roku TV models, the Roku TV licensing program expands to a total of seven Roku TV brands in the U.K., offering best-in-class smart TVs at competitive price points.
