For those who are unfamiliar with Google TV, it's an evolution of Android TV that brings together movies, shows and live TV and organizes them all based on your personal preferences.
"Our theme at CES this year is "Experience More" and by combining cutting-edge displays with smart and convenient content powered by Google, I am confident we will allow people around the world to do just that in 2021".

In embracing Google TV, TCL joins Sony, which announced last week that its entire 2021 lineup of televisions will run Google's latest software.
"The introduction of TCL Google TVs will take our partnership with Google to the next level", said Kevin Wang, CEO of TCL Industrial Holdings and TCL Electronics.
Shobana Radhakrishnan, Senior Engineering Director, Google TV, said, "We are excited to partner with TCL to bring Google TV to customers around the world".
TCL also plans to releases its first 85-inch Roku TVs this year, including two 4K models that should support AirPlay 2 and HomeKit. This new collaboration should give Google's TV operating system more market share in the U.S. market. None of these features would matter if Google had a bunch of missing gaps with supported services, so having nearly all major streaming apps integrated from day one means we get to use an actual completed product rather than a work-in-progress. Unfortunately, Google's game streaming service was not mentioned in TCL's announcement.
