With its latest Roku Select and series televisions, Roku has officially thrown its hat in the ring of TV manufacturing.

The company announced it earlier in 2022, and buyers can now get their hands on one, available exclusively at Best Buy stores or on Bestbuy.com.

With their launch, Roku is swinging for the fences: They’re not just launching one, two, or five TVs.

They’re going all out and launching 11 different models, ranging from 24 to 75 inches, in two different lineups.

They start from $149 and go up to over $1,199. As we mentioned earlier, there are two series:

The Roku Select Class series is the basic line, including HD and 4K models.

The Roku Class Plus Series is your best bet if you’re looking for something fancier.

For more details, you can find them on their respective product pages via Best Buy.

Fair warning: don’t expect these TVs to push the technical limits on image quality.

While the Select series TVs come with local dimming and QLED, which should help improve image quality, Roku hasn’t released many details about their picture-enhancing extras.

So, what happens to their Roku-branded partnerships with companies like TCL? Nothing, it’s business as usual, according to Mustafa Ozgen, president of devices at Roku:

“These Roku-branded TVs will not only complement the current lineup of partner-branded Roku TV models but also allow us to enable future smart TV innovations,” Ozgen said in a January press release.
