Videocon Launches World’s First Windows 10 TV Starting at Rs 39,990 ($615)

Videocon has partnered with Microsoft to produce the World’s first Windows 10 powered LED TV which will come in 32-inch and 40-inch models. At a time when Android TVs, Tizen TVs and WebOS TVs are trying to grapple the nascent Smart TV market, it is indeed refreshing to see a Windows 10 TV. With Windows 10, Microsoft has been pitching it as WaaS (Windows as a service), and this looks like a new addition in that regard.


Before we shade any doubts on it, Videocon, the Indian company has already detailed that it can be used as a personal computer and will start retailing from the next month. The 32-inch variant will set you back by Rs 39,990 (~$615) and the 40-inch will cost you Rs 52,990 (~$815). The TV would be dubbed as “One Touch TV” and will come installed with Microsoft Office, Windows Store and all the other essential apps.

The company is expecting 5 percent of its sales from the next quarter to come from the Windows TV and after gauging the users’ response, they will also go ahead with the larger variants of the Windows 10 TV. Videocon will sell the TV across multiple sales channels in India and the after sales will be supported by their current service networks.

As of now, it’s not yet clear if the TV will offer a full-fledged Windows 10 experience like any other conventional machine and even if it does, how capable will it be when it comes to computing prowess. In the current scenario if one wanted a Windows 10 on their TV screens they need to buy a Windows PC stick which will act as a tiny Windows machine. Videocon seems to have taken away that stick and instead integrated Windows 10 directly in to the TV. Unfortunately, we still don’t know about the processor, RAM and other hardware details.

The Windows 10 TV will however host the usual bunch of connectivity features which includes 4 HDMI, 3 USB, VGA and the usual Audio input/output ports. Videocon has also integrated a soft of quick swap feature which will let users shift from the usual TV mode to Windows 10 mode by a simple click of a button.

Another SEO tool drops the word “SEO”

What will happen to influencer marketing if Instagram ‘Likes’ go away?
