    Any idea if Kayo works on this?

    • +2 votes

      No Kayo on this

      Best option is Chromecast with Google TV.

      •  

        Which is ~$40 (in the "6-month" Netflix bundle, a bit more without) and you end up using it instead of the TV's apps anyway.

          wtf, when i brought a chromcast in 2013, netflix was just an app on it, now they subscription it??

          Man f that.

      If you have an android device Hisense's have a screen mirroring feature, although can be annoying when you want to use the device at the same time.

      Just get an android box. Way better than TVs built in APPs.

      Yes, there was a software update about 2 days ago and there is kayo on this

    •  

      I have a 65q7 and Kayo is available on the app store. This has the same VIDIAA OS I thought…

      I have received my TV today and can confirm this has Kayo.

      Purchased from Powerland for $829 delivered (EBAY Plus) using code PLUSDE1 and was delivered next day

      very happy with TV, if you are umming and arring pull the trigger

      •  

        Thanks very much 👌👍

      •  

        I bought this TV yesterday, all setup nicely but it could only connect to my Wifi 2.4GHz band but cannot connect to the 5GHz band. Have any of you who got the TV experience the same issue? My router is Asus RT-AC68U.

      I just bough this Tv It has kayo pre-installed

    Someone tell me if this is worth it :)

      Depends what you're after. Check out some reviews comparing this tv and others in your price range.

      Pros of this is it's cheap and big. Has basic smart tv functions
      Cons are it's rather dim and that wouldn't be great for rooms with ample daylight. But still rated for HDR so should achieve acceptable brightness levels. Also whilst technically 100hz it interpolates the image so it's basically 50hz with some magic to make it look a little smoother

      •  

        Thank you, could you please suggest a better alternative that's as big? Ideally under $2000, but can stretch it to $3000.

          Hisense Q8

        • +3 votes

          As the other commenter said, the Q8 is a much better TV. We've currently got some run out Sony models that would be a lot nicer, something like the 75 inch Sony x8000 for roughly 2k

          • +1 vote

            @lemonliam: hisense 75q8 or sony 75x8000?

            •  

              @hocm: I prefer Sony because of android tv but lighting tech is better on the 75q8
              Maybe go 75q8 and get Chromecast with tv

        • +4 votes

          I got the 65 inch Sony X9000H for under $2k. Runs Android which is nice and supposedly better motion handling than hisense.

      The TCL C715 QLED is on eBay near new for $849 delivered. Better tv but smaller.

  •  

    Does anyone who has one of these know if it runs Disney Plus? There is no info at all on smart apps on the Hisense webpage.

    Seems like an even better price then Stan Cash's annual car park sale last month which was $999 with a $100 visa card
    https://www.ozbargain.com.au/node/612639

    I was going to buy it then but held off.. might bite now instead… for a basic 70' its a pretty good price!

    Only benefit with Hisense is the warranty is 3yrs compared to 12 months with Samsung (which is what I was tossing up).
    Then again I'm not sure what the experience is like if you had to go down a fault path with them.

    • +6 votes

      You'll get more than 1 year with samsung. In my experience, and others in my surrounding family, Sammy products with faults outside of their warrant period (.e.g 2-3 years) - samsung usually send a tech to fix it without cost.

      • +2 votes

        Ahhh true.. plus I forgot about ACL which would take you to a minimum of 24 months at least.

      • +5 votes

        Second this experience - I had a Samsung that had a panel failure after about 13 months, which was replaced by a tech they sent out under warranty, and then that panel failed in another 12 months or so and was replaced with a new unit of slightly above equivalent quality. While I have had to make more Samsung warranty claims that products of other brands, I cannot fault the claim experience, even when warranty period is in question.

      • +4 votes

        Wholeheartedly agree, Samsung sent out a tech and fixed up my mother's TV super quickly for free despite it being more than 12 months since purchase!

    Do you know if I can screen my ipad to this TV? I'm unable to do it on my current Hisense!

      You need a TV that supports AirPlay 2. E.g. Samsung TVs.

      • +1 vote

        Or buy a lightning / usb-c > HDMI cable and do it via that

        • +2 votes

          omg what is this?!!? i can airplay?

          •  

            @parker1: No, you can plug in a cable in that scenario.

          •  

            @parker1: Yes, you can (in relation to AirPlay 2). As long as both devices are connected to the same network. E.g. both connected by wifi to the same router. It's pretty wild. I was impressed when I found out I could even cast a Macbook's screen to the TV using this method. It's great for watching online catch-up TV with an adblocker.

            •  

              @prophet: Just looked up the features.. it has something called Remote Now:

              Stream media directly from your smartphone
              RemoteNOW allows you to play media content directly from your smartphone to the TV with minimal effort. As long as your compatible TV and the smartphone are on the same Wi-Fi network, the RemoteNOW app will detect the TV and make all the streaming and control options available immediately. That means you can do everything from streaming content to viewing personal photos and videos directly from your smartphone.

    hey guys anyone knows if it's good for PS5 or Xbox S/X?

    it says 100hz refresh rate, so can I assume it's good?

    Thanks in advance guys

    • +4 votes

      No HDMI 2.1 so not ideal for next gen consoles
      100hz refresh rate is effectively 50hz. In other words its a fake 100hz refresh rate as the panel makes up every second frame based on previous and next frame.

      Also heard this tv is susceptible to motion blur but I have no first hand experience.

    •  

      No

    • +1 vote

      Absolutely not. You will occasionally get motion artifacts from post processing, while watching Netflix

  •  

    this or the 65S8 for around same price?

      S8 is newer. You might want to do a comparison between models.

      65s8 any day. go to store play normal tv and netflix or 4k side by side

      Or if you're that particular about the OS and on tight budget, perhaps a cheap Chromecast with Google TV would work?

      I have the 75 inch eko android tv and besides the poor speakers I can't find any issues.

      •  

        How do you find it with free to air channels?

        • +1 vote

          I don't watch really much fta but I would say similar to my other tv which is a 65 inch hisense gen 6

        •  

          Shocking. Was way worse than a 2012 LED I had beside it in SD and HD. 4K was its only semi-watchable resolution. An appallingly murky screen.

          I'd buy an Aldi or an EKO over this any day, and that's saying something.

    • +1 vote

      Not as good as the qled but better than the 75

    •  

      I have the 50" eko and the Android TV interface is laggy and crap. It needs to be power cycled weekly to keep the wifi working and regularly wigs out and freezes the picture while the audio keeps playing.

      I'll be trying an Android TV stick on it soon to see if it any better. If not it's going back before the end of the warranty.

      Id much rather have a dumb TV and a chromecast…

      •  

        I have the 65" EKO QLED and it does freezes but infrequently. It might be a problem with the BT remote.

  •  

    This or wait till 80 inches become under $1000?

    • +1 vote

      Or wait till 100" is under $500?

    Two Options - eBay Plus required

    The Good Guys eBay downside not many click & collect options

    $845 with PLUSDE1 ($50 off)

    or

    Add $105 of any item to get it to $1000 then apply PLUSDE1 will come to $900 ($100 off)


    Powerland free delivery downside only 4 available

    $829 with PLUSDE1 ($50 off)

    or

    Add $121 of any item to get it to $1000 then apply PLUSDE1 will come to $900 ($100 off)

    • +1 vote

      Sheesh $829 with free delivery is even more tempting now…

      I knew i shoulda not looked at this lol

      Lemme guess it was 15% off yesterday being $747 with the other ebay code

      •  

        Or $808.08 instore with this deal with 9% off gift cards

        •  

          Seems a bit too big for pick up and my car to transport

      •  

        IIRC it was still full price yesterday, the discounted price looked to start this morning at 10am~

        •  

          Wondering why this has so many upvotes and it is still in stock at Powerland @ $100 cheaper when getting delivered (If you have EBAY Plus)

          Do people just prefer to buy from store?

    I have a series 7 55" and can't really play games on it due to input lag. Also can see ghosting during dark scenes.

    •  

      wait I have the series 7 55inch as well? You just have to turn on game mode. Which will make it go away unless you're on console/pc that can do 4k itll look shit though.

      •  

        I'm on PC. Yes I had game mode on but still had input lag.

    downside is it's pretty dim and only 50Hz

      Do you have this TV?

    •  

      Aren't all of them 50Hz plus marketing tricks?

    •  

      From what i can see it is a 4k 60hz panel like most others that don't do HDMI2.1 120hz. Unless you are talking the nonsense marketing fake 100hz, 200hz etc that means nothing and is typically recommended to be disabled anyway.

  •  

    Dam what a good price. Bought the series 7 55inch for $750 ish. Pales in comparison.

  • +1 vote

    As someone who owns the 50" version of this TV, I would say it's perfectly fine. I have an XB1X hooked up to it and haven't had any issues and haven't really felt I need a whole lot more at the moment (obviously 120hz would be great but that isn't going to happen at this price). HDR10 is nice.

    The app selection is also good, it does have the Foxtel app which removed the need for me to have a Foxtel box, along with the majority of the other standards (no Kayo).

    I got my 50" for $895 a year ago so I'd recommend pulling the trigger on this.

    •  

      What model number is yours?

      Remember the 70" panel inside, and other pieces, will be totally different. Not just a bit bigger.

  •  

    Is this model similar to Hisense Q7?

      No, Q7 has quantum filter and different dimming tech.
      I'd say S5<S8<Q7<Q8
