On Tuesday, Vizio announced its new M- and E-Series TVs, bringing its high-end features to more affordable models.
The new M-Series TVs include some of the new technology featured in Vizio's high-end P-Series TVs, including support for high dynamic range (HDR) with Dolby Vision and built-in Google Cast. The M-Series also ships with a 6-inch Android tablet that acts as a remote for the TV with its SmartCast app. In its press release on the new M-Series, Vizio emphasized that these aren't just TVs, but rather "home theater displays," because they do not come with built-in TV tuners. The 2016 M-Series 4K TVs start at $849.99 for the 50-inch model, and range up to $3,999.99 for the 80-inch model.
In addition to announcing the new 2016 M-Series 4K TVs, Vizio unveiled the entry-level E-Series collection. Like its higher-priced siblings, the E-Series Home Theater Display features built-in Google Cast and is tuner-free, but these entry-level TVs do not support HDR or ship with the tablet remote. However, the E-Series can be controlled via the SmartCast app on your existing devices. The 4K E-Series TVs start at $469.99 for the 43-inch model, and go up to $1,699.99 for a 70-inch. Vizio is also offering non-4K E-Series TVs with SmartCast starting at $229.99 for a 32-inch option and $369.99 for a 43-inch. Both the E-Series and M-Series TVs are rolling out to major retailers from today. The Vizio P-Series starts at $999.99 for the 50-inch option and goes up to $3,799.99 for a 75-inch TV.
