The new Google TV is an upgrade over Android TV that Google debuted in the summer. It brought new life to the old platform, refocusing its interface on the breadth of content that was available and helping users find shows they'd be interested in more readily. It was a departure from the app-based interface that Android TV pushed, and one th at was well-received.

Reviewing the Google TV interface at launch, Android Central's Joe Maring praised it heavily, saying:

I've thoroughly enjoyed everything else about Google TV. I love that it's integrated throughout the entire interface instead of being a standalone app the way Apple handles its TV application, it's ten times easier to find new shows to watch, and adding a show to your watchlist from Google Search also adds it to your Google TV watchlist (which is fantastic). None of these features would matter if Google had a bunch of missing gaps with supported services, so having almost all major streaming apps integrated from day one means we get to use an actual completed product rather than a work-in-progress. Coming from Google, that's a big deal.

In other words, we have a lot to look forward to when TCL starts rolling these out on their TVs.

On than that, TCL also announced new Roku TV models, launching a refresh of its 6 Series line this morning at CES. It announced an XL Collection of jumbo-sized TVs, bringing 85-inch TVs to its audience.
