How to watch TCL’s 2023 global flagship product launch event

The arrival of fall — or close enough, anyway — means a few things. Football. Too much excitement for pumpkin spice. And all kinds of new tech. And that extends to the TV world (and more) this week with TCL’s global flagship product launch.

TCL is probably best-known for its televisions. And we’ll hear plenty on the latest in QD-Mini LED tech (we’ve been plenty impressed by the Mini LED side of things thus far). But we’re also expecting more from the world of home theater products in general, as well as smart home appliances, NXTPAPER (we first saw that sort-of Kindle/iPad hybrid at CES in January), and plenty more.

So there’s going to be plenty for everyone. But, of course, we’re all looking forward to the latest on the TV front given TCL’s proclivity for creating televisions that hit the sweet spot between features and affordability. (Plus there’s this 98-inch monster that just got announced that we can’t wait to get our hands on.) And maybe a few other surprises on that front? There’s only one way to find out, of course. And that’s by flying to Europe, eating some great food, having some great coffee, and then checking out the whole thing.

Or, ya know, fire up your computer and watch live from the safety and comfort of your own home.

The event is scheduled for 8 a.m. ET on Tuesday, August 29. (That’s 5 a.m. on the West Coast, and 2 p.m. local time in Europe, where the event is taking place.)

How to watch the 2023 Women’s World Cup

The 2023 Women's World Cup is off to a good start for the defending U.S. Women's National Team after an opening 3-0 win over Vietnam. Up next for the Americans will be a tough match against the Netherlands on Wednesday, July 6 (that's Thursday in New Zealand, where the Group Stage matches are being played.)

The world was very different the last time someone other than the U.S. won the FIFA Women's World Cup. Steve Jobs was still alive. Google+ was a thing. The iPad was a baby. Someone left an iPhone 4 in a bar. Facebook was getting ready to go public. Someone was really trying to make 3D TV and phones a thing.

TCL QM8 Mini-LED TV hands-on impressions: I’m shook
A river runs through a fertile valley with a mountain in the distance on a TCL QM8 Mini-LED TV.

I don’t think you’re ready for the TCL QM8 TV. I sure wasn’t. And we need to talk about it.

Many of us were expecting good things from the TCL QM8. Based on some of the DMs, emails, and comments I’ve received, there’s a lot of interest in this TV. And I think that’s because what came out of CES looked really encouraging. But TCL is also changing its model numbers convention and kind of restructuring its TV lineup a bit, which might have had us wondering if the QM8 would be all that and a bag of chips, or possibly just another iteration on what used to be known as the 6-Series.

TCL’s 2023 mini-LED 4K TVs are shockingly affordable
TCL Q Class QM8 mini-LED 4K TV.

TCL has finally revealed its full lineup of TVs for 2023, and it includes a new flagship that is sure to give Samsung and Sony some sleepless nights. The 98-inch QM8 isn't TCL's first 98-inch TV, and it isn't the first 98-inch TV to sell for $10,000 or less, but it is the first mini-LED-powered 98-inch TV to sell for such a low price. Samsung's only 98-inch 4K, mini-LED TV -- the excellent QN90A -- costs 50% more at $15,000. Even the 85-inch model, at $2,800 is surprisingly affordable compared to similar mini-LED TVs.
