The first Polaroid TV series to feature HDR and Dolby Vision, the TVs immerse viewers in the on-screen action, bringing every scene to life with exceptional picture clarity and colour.

Designed to work with Alexa, the series also supports hands-free voice control, enabling viewers with an Amazon Echo1 or Dot1 to control the TVs with nothing but the sound of their voice.

Additionally, the Smart TVs offers 24/7 access to the latest and greatest movies and box-sets from Netflix and Amazon Prime Video as well as YouTube.  The TVs also provide plenty of access to the latest content in HDR, not only supporting the widely used standard HDR10 format, but also the newly developed standard, Hybrid Log Gamma or “HLG”.

“Since we first launched the Polaroid Series 1 TVs exclusively with ASDA in 2012, we’ve had a great response from consumers in the UK,” said April Lunde, CEO and General Counsel at Polaroid. “We’re excited to bring to market a fresh feel with some of today’s most popular technology for the Polaroid 4K UHD Smart Series TV, the first Polaroid TV that works with Alexa. In a competitive TV market, the partnering of household names ASDA and Polaroid, alongside the Polaroid brand’s reputation for innovation and value, ensures unrivalled value for money in the Polaroid 4K UHD Smart Series TV range.”

With all models offering 4K resolution, they make the perfect upgrade for anyone with an HD ready or 1080p full HD TV. Thanks to its central stand and ultra-narrow bezel design, the Polaroid 4K UHD Smart Series TV also features a look and feel that will fit in with any home theatre system.
