French consumer brand Thomson, which launched a year ago in India, is now introducing India’s only 40-inch 4K smart TV. Part of Thomson’s promise to deliver ‘Friendly Technology’ at affordable prices, this TV, priced at INR 20,999/- will be available for purchase online on Flipkart’s platform starting 16th March at 12 AM.
Last year, Thomson re-entered the Indian market after an almost 15-year gap and since then has witnessed a significant growth in demand from online consumers, who are savvy and informed about choices. Having set an ambitious target of 6-7 percent market share by 2020, Thomson is banking on e-commerce as a tool to firm up its foothold in India and further establish the brand. Research suggests that the potential for sales in India is around 14 million sets a year, with Smart TVs accounting for about 65 percent of this.
This is Thomson TV’s 4th new product launch in the smart TV category over the last year and will further cement the brand’s position as the frontrunner in the online TV sale. With this launch, the brand continues to push the envelope and live up to its promise of giving consumer a new and unique experience.

Enthralled at the launch, Mr. Avneet Singh Marwah, CEO, SPPL, exclusive brand licensee of THOMSON TV’s in India comments “We are excited to launch India’s only 40 4k TVs, we want Indian consumers to upgrade their TVs from FHD to 4k at a super affordable price. I’m confident that this will set the trend in the market as consumers have started focusing on specs and better picture quality, as you know in the past the 4k content was limited, therefore this TV comes with the latest specs where consumers can access their favorite 4k YouTube content.
