About BPL Company
BPL Group was established in 1963 in Kerala. It was an electronics Company mainly involved in manufacturing health care equipment.
It then ventured into making TVs, Refrigerators, washing machines and other consumer electronics.
This was at a time when most of these products were imported into India and hence were too expensive for the common man.
BPL bridged this gap by offering affordable import-quality products.
You might recall growing up around a BPL TV, landline phone, or one of BPL’s many products.
Only a few competitors existed in the Indian market then.
Today, the competitors to BPL are many. But BPL continues to maintain its position as an industry veteran and one of India’s oldest consumer electronics Company.
This has been possible because of BPL’s commitment to quality at an affordable price.
A look at BPL’s product line-up
BPL TVs have been known for their durability as the older TV sets easily lasted for 10 to 15 years.
But today’s TVs have to fill a longer list of requirements along with the reliability factor.
This is why BPL has launched a variety of TVs in different size, and price segments with a combination of latest features.
Each line up of BPL TVs is known by a unique name viz. BPL Vivid, BPL Stellar, and BPL Android.
The BPL Vivid line-up of TVs comprises of Standard or non-smart TVs from BPL in screen sizes ranging from 24-inches to 55-inches.
The Stellar series on the other hand, represent the basic smart TVs from BPL in three sizes, 32-inch, 43-inch and 49-inch.
Both these line-ups of TVs first came out 3 to 4 years ago and are still bestsellers on many e-commerce platforms.
However, if you want to future-proof your TV then go for BPL’s most recent line-up of Android 4K TVs.
Why? Check out the in-depth review below to get a clear idea.
