Media streaming services such as Netflix and Prime Video have changed our TV watching experience forever. There was a time when neighbors gathered in one home to watch a movie or show like Chitrahaar. Then TV viewing became a family activity and a companion of our mealtimes. Now, TV is becoming increasingly personal. We want to watch what we like to watch, at a time that is convenient for us. That is why web series and OTT services are gaining such rapid popularity in India.
However, to enjoy the personalized viewing experience of such services, you need a TV that can connect to the internet. For this, you can use devices such as Fire TV Stick, or buy a Smart TV.
This is the reason why more and more consumer electronics brands are launching Smart Televisions in India. Today, US-based Compaq too has leaped into this race. And if the brand’s first Smart TV offering is any indication, it is going to give a tough challenge to other brands. Compaq has launched its first range of Smart TVs through a licensing association with Ossify Industries.
Compaq Hex QLED 4K Smart Televisions
The US-based brand Compaq stepped into the Smart TV segment in India by launching its flagship QLED 4K series called Hex. Hex TVs are available in 55-inch and 65-inch versions. The introductory price of these two models is INR 59,999 for its 55-inch Hex and INR 89,999 for 65-inch Hex TV. These TVs are available on Flipkart from 1st September 2020.
