There’s a Roku TV size for every need and budget.
The TV market is seeing many innovations in technology recently, Roku TV is something you might have heard. You may be wondering, what exactly is a Roku TV?
How does it work? How does it compare with other Smart TVs? Don’t worry, we will answer all your questions in our Roku TV size guide.
What is a Roku TV?
Roku TV is a device that comes loaded with Roku’s own software called Roku OS. By using this device, you can access all major streaming services like Amazon Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ and others. The company has been around since 2008, but with the recent boom of interest in streaming services, Roku has become a popular name.
Roku’s strength is its operating software, as it is an easy-to-use interface. As its smart platform is a popular one, and a good one as well, many manufacturers choose to include the Roku OS as their TV software.
It is very similar to how different manufacturers use the Windows Operating system from Microsoft in their laptops, and that makes any laptop with Windows OS a Windows Laptop. Any TV with Roku OS is a Roku TV.
TV manufacturers that license Roku’s streaming platform and combine it with their TVs can offer a great value at an affordable price. You can get a Roku TV from popular TV manufacturers like TCL, Toshiba, and Hisense.
If you have a non-Roku TV, you can get a small device from Roku and then connect it to your TV to access the Roku TV OS and the entire experience.
Why are Roku TVs popular?
Roku TVs are popular because Roku OS is an easy-to-use simple and intuitive interface. You could buy a Roku device, or a Roku stick and turn your non-smart TV into a Smart TV. The fact that they are affordable also helps their popularity.
The Roku TV has also all streaming services listed on their platform, so if you have a Roku TV, you can watch movies and shows from Netflix or Amazon very easily on your TV. You also do not have to pay anything to keep your Roku OS going.
If you choose to stream Netflix on your Roku TV you will need a Netflix subscription, and the same is true for any other streaming service that you will have to pay to access. The Roku channel itself does have movies and shows you can watch for free.

Small Roku TVs: 32-to-50-inch Roku TVs
Small TVs are super versatile. Big manufacturers like Samsung or Sony have only a few offerings in the small TV category. They focus on larger models. In addition, small TVs from big popular manufacturers are also not a good value for money.
Their pricing can seem exorbitant for the same features that you can get from budget brands like TCL, Insignia or Vizio. Small TVs also do not need high-resolution displays, as you are less prone to seeing tiny TV pixels on a small screen.
Small TVs also serve specific rooms in your home, like the Kitchen, a small bedroom or even a bathroom. If you go for the larger end of small screens, which is 48 or 50 inches, they can be perfect for a small living room.
In today’s market, a small TV can be considered any TV that is 50-inches or smaller. This could be a 32-inch screen like the TCL Roku Smart TV. This TV has an LED panel that is Full HD resolution(1080p).
TCL is a fast-growing TV brand from China. They are known for offering great features at an affordable price. They also produce some of the most affordable big-screen TVs as well.
Another option at the 32-inch point is the Hisense Class H4 Series Roku Smart TV. However, the screen resolution is only 720p.
Slightly bigger than a 32-inch screen, you can opt for a 40-inch model from TCL or a Hisense 40-Inch Roku Smart TV.
The 40 inch Hisense model is Full HD, so if you’re thinking of getting a Hisense TV, we recommend that you go for a 40-inch model, instead of a 32-inch model.
In the small TV category, one of the best TVs in the market is the TCL 43-inch Smart TV. The TV is available in almost all sizes upward from 43 inches, right up to 85 inches. The TV comes with a 4K UHD display, so you can be sure that you will not be disappointed with the TV panel.
The Roku TV platform is integrated with the TV, so there is no additional hardware you would have to buy. The TV also has Google Assistant which lets you search for movies and shows across thousands of available apps, get entertainment recommendations, access media playback controls, and even control your smart devices if you have any installed in your home.
Almost bordering the mid-sized TV category is TCL 49-Inch Roku LED TV.
However, at a 49-inch point, we would recommend that you go for a 4K screen, consider this 50-inch model from TCL.
Mid-Sized Roku TVs: 55-to-65-inch Roku TVs
We have categorized TVs that are between 55-inch and 65-inch as mid-sized Roku TVs. Mid-sized TVs are perfect for making your TV watching experience more immersive.
Once consumers enjoy TV shows and movies on a bigger display they can seldom move back to a smaller screen. Movies and sporting events are best enjoyed on larger displays.
Mid-sized displays are also perfect as they do not hijack your living space completely.
TCL 55-inch 5-Series 4K Roku Smart TV comes with Ultra HD display with Dolby Vision HDR. It is also a QLED display. QLED TVs are better in terms of color accuracy. They are only beaten by OLED displays.
If you’re looking for a bigger mid-sized TV then Hisense 65-Inch Smart TV can be the right choice for you. The TV is also available in a 55-inch model.
Big Roku TVs: 75-to-85-inch Roku TVs
There is an easy rule for buying TVs, bigger is better. While this is not true, it is indeed a rule that many consumers like to follow.
In fact, budget manufacturers have made big screens accessible to the average consumers who do not want to bleed their wallets for a big TV. If you know a big Roku Smart TV is the right one for you then we recommend TCL 75-inch 5-Series Roku Smart TV.
Also, a testament to Roku TVs success is another TCL TV, the 85″ TCL Class 4K UHD Roku Smart TV. Watching TV on a big screen TV can be a true cinematic experience.
