Colour broadcast in India started with the Asian Games in 1982, but colour televisions took a decade more to gain popularity. The economic liberalisation in 1991 brought with it a couple of satellite channels operated by foreign programmers.
Soon domestic companies joined the party, with media companies like Zee Entertainment and Sun TV providing content, while BPL and Onida manufactured TVs. Local TV manufacturers dominated the entire decade till the early 2000s but gradually started losing out to Japanese and Korean competitors like Samsung, Sony, and LG.
When we deliberate on buying a TV these days, Indian brands rarely come to our minds. The Samsungs and LGs command a bulk of market share. The rapid change in technology too played its part. The market switched over from Cathode Ray Tube (CRT) to Liquid Crystal Display (LCD) to Light Emitting Diode (LED) televisions in a blink of an eye, and Indian brands simply could not keep up with the change.
However, the advent of online commerce has given a fresh lease of life to some domestic brands, simultaneously helping new brands get a toehold in the highly competitive market. We have made your life easier by providing a list of the best Indian LED TV companies and brands.
Here is the Indian TV brands list with some of the best Indian TV brands:
Owned by branded electrical products company Havells India, Lloyd has become a top trusted Indian TV brand. One of the top three players in the Air Conditioner segment, Lloyd is also gaining traction in the TV market. Lloyd has a wide range of Full HD, HD Ready and Ultra HD LED TVs in its portfolio.
