CloudWalker Cloud TV: It trawls the web for free content!

September 10, 2017 11:00 IST

This one is for those who want to discover new content and watch it in high resolution, but are not too finicky about how the TV looks, says Abhik Sen.

The CloudWalker 65-inch Cloud TV 65SU-C (₹1,35,990) is a big, curved LED TV that can't be mounted on a wall. Its finish and design also look dated.

The TV boots up quite fast and the CloudWalker interface is user-friendly.

Its big remote with multiple buttons may look daunting, but is easy to use, especially when the air mouse function is turned on.

 

To test the TV, I watched a couple of UEFA Champions League matches on it; the HD pictures were good and the sound was loud and clear to provide the right ambience to my medium-sized hall.

A 4K Blu-Ray of Frozen produced good results, but I've seen brighter screens.

The best part is that you can directly stream stuff from your Apple devices to the TV. That's not to say anything about the content discovery engine, which trawls the web for free or freemium content.

You can also play live TV in a window, while you're looking for other stuff on the content discovery engine -- a great feature if you want to catch up on the news.

Being an Android-based TV, I was able to download as well as sideload necessary apps and had my fill watching Fuller House on Netflix.

The app lets you mirror the TV screen on the phone and works quite well.
