What to look for in a Hisense TV

Picture Quality- Hisense offers a variety of screen resolutions from 720p and 1080p full HD to 4K UHD. If you plan on streaming 4K content and purchasing a 4K UHD DVD player in the future, a UHD screen is the best choice to take full advantage of the picture quality.

A TV that has built-in Wi-Fi and a streaming platform integrated into the unit means you can have access to thousands of apps without having to buy and maintain any extra equipment.

Voice Controls- For anyone who relies on their Amazon Alexa and Google Assistant enabled devices to maintain their smart home network, a TV with integrated voice controls would be a great addition to the home. Hisense televisions have support for both Alexa and Google Assistant voice commands for hands-free controls.
