You can get a great 4K and HDR TV for incredibly cheap these days - but there are 10 hidden costs you haven't thought of when you go to 4K
That's a seriously budget-conscious price tag for a large TV that comes with 4K resolution and supports HDR - a feature that gives movies and TV shows a boost in color and contrast quality (at least for content that supports HDR).
I've tried TCL's earlier 5-series 4K HDR TVs, and they are absolutely fantastic. They also run on the same operating system as Roku's media streamers, which is great. It's like having a Roku media streamer built into the TV.

If you want to make the most of a new 4K TV, you'll need to upgrade a few things.
I've listed below 10 things that you'll likely need to upgrade to make the most of a new 4K TV. To be clear, you don't need to upgrade anything I've listed. However, you may be left wondering why you bought a 4K TV if you don't.
