India today has 170 million households with a television but less than 20million homes own Smart TVs. We launched our range of Mi TVs over 3 years ago and have been leading the Smart TV market since the past 10 consecutive quarters. Enhancing the at-home viewing experience, Mi TVs have played an important role in ushering a new era of Smart TVs in India, by providing an unparalleled lineup of options that deliver on engineering, technological prowess, and a large pool of content across genres.
Eshwar Nilakantan, Category Lead – TV, added:

With today’s launch, we are focused on moving closer to our dream of providing ‘Smart TV Innovation for every Indian Home’. We believe that our first Redmi TV line-up will be able to drive the next level of Smart TV penetration in the country, thereby making it more accessible to the end users. With Redmi Smart TV X Series, we are bringing larger than life visual experiences and immersive audio experience to the users, and transporting viewers beyond the surface of a display. We will also be manufacturing 100% of our Redmi TVs in India, staying true to our commitment of Make in India.
