Panasonic Firefox OS-Based TVs Announced At CES 2015: New Line Brings Firefox Into The Living Room [VIDEO]
For 2015, Panasonic will be rolling out a line of Firefox OS based TVs for the spring. The company is hoping that this move will help boost sales and make them more competitive in the market. The new TVs will have a variety of functions to make them stand out from the crowd.
According to Engadget, the new line of TVs which will be under the Life+Screen 4k brand will all be able to perform multiple smart TV functions. These include sending content from the TV to other devices that are running Firefox OS. You can also run web apps right on your TV. If you happen to have other appliances with the same OS, they'll be able to send notifications to your TV.
Panasonic actually announced this move for their 2014 line but the idea was met with lackluster reviews. It seems in 2015 they're coming out with a bigger and better product. The TVs in the line are the CX600, CX650, CX800, and CX850. These sets will all have the software installed.
This move is to compete with brands like LG and Samsung who have fully embraced the smart home market and focused on creating products for the new home environment. Panasonic is hoping that by having a product that connects with multiple devices will create more revenue for the company.
