2016 E-Series TVs

The more affordable E-Series starts at just $229 for the entry-level 32-inch model, and includes both full-HD (1080p) and UHD (4K) resolutions across its 13 screen sizes. Like last year's models, the E-Series TVs will continue to exhibit a focus on picture quality, with full-array local dimming for more impressive contrast. The full-HD sets will include a TV tuner for over-the-air content, but they've been phased out of the more advanced UHD E-Series TVs.
