Toshiba TV 2021: All the 4K and HD models detailed

This guide breaks down Toshiba’s latest smart TV range of affordable 4K and HD Ready TVs. If you’re on a budget, Toshiba’s selection might have what you need.

Toshiba has been on a steady rise in the past few years, focusing its attention towards the affordable end of the market paying dividends as it grabs more market share in the UK TV market with each year.

The new range features a few more advanced features on some models (Dolby Atmos, eARC), with Dolby Vision present as Toshiba looks to cement its position as the value-choice in the market.

We’ll update this page with more details on availability and prices for every model when we get them.

What to expect from Toshiba TVs in 2021/2022

Much the same as we’ve come to expect from the TV brand in past few years – a focus on affordability and sprinkling of premium features.

There are more premium features this year with Atmos sound and eARC connectivity on selected sets. Alexa integration is a headline feature, but there’s assistance from Google on some models too.

With TVs that cover 43 to 65-inches for most models announce, there’s plenty of choice in terms of what size to go for to suit your room. For smaller rooms or those in need of a cheap smart TV, there’s the HD Ready WK3C series that comes in 24- and 32-inch sizes.

And as these sets launch ahead of the inevitable Black Friday/Christmas rush, expect to see them carry over to 2022 as well.

Toshiba focuses on choice

Toshiba flagship TV

Toshiba is launching an Android TV for customers hankering after the Google experience. That means Chromecast, Google Stadia and Google Play Store are available; the latter promising a wider range of apps than Toshiba’s own UI is stocked with (such as Disney+).

And while Toshiba seems partial to the Alexa smart ecosystem (which to be honest is the biggest on this planet), it also has Google Assistant support on some of its TVs, so there’s choice in terms of which smart system you want to go for.

Affordable double whammy of Dolby Vision and Atmos

Toshiba continues to support Dolby’s dynamic HDR format for improved picture quality (at least over HDR10) with apps such as Netflix and Disney+.

We can’t recall Dolby Atmos present on many Toshiba TVs before, and while you shouldn’t expect immersive surround sound (and that goes for the vast majority of TVs that support Atmos), you can rely on Dolby’s audio processing to refine the set’s performance.

A TV that talks to you (in Alexa)

Toshiba Alexa

Toshiba continues its relationship with Amazon with built-in Alexa on a number of its latest TVs.

For these models, users can bark orders at their TV and ask Alexa for assistance without getting up from their sofa. Expect the usual list of skills, with the ability to jump between inputs, tweak volume and bring up apps. Don’t, however, expect Alexa to work within apps as her assistance is on broad system level.

More SVOD apps onboard

Toshiba UA3A Android TV

The addition of Android to the line-up brought apps such as Disney+ to Toshiba’s TVs and more apps have since launched, with the Red Bull TV app now available on Toshiba’s Smart TVs in the UK.

The Red Bull app features content of the most extreme sports action on the globe, is free to view and features exclusive content such as the Mercedes-Benz UCI MTB World Cup, Red Bull Cliff Diving World Series, along with films, shows and documentaries. The app also supports 4K HDR, Dolby Vision and Atmos.

It fully supports Toshiba’s TRU Picture Engine technology, with TRU Micro dimming adapting the set’s contrast for deeper blacks and better detail in dark and bright scenes: the TRU Flow motion technology reduces judder and enables a smoother image, while TRU Resolution upscales sub-4K for better clarity and detail for the best picture quality possible.

Toshiba’s relationship with Amazon continues with Alexa built into the set (so you can talk to the TV directly), while there’s also the Twitch app for those who love streaming games. Prices start at £379.

With the smart TV market broadening in terms of options, Toshiba has launched an Android model as part of its line-up.

At launch it’ll support Android TV 9 with an upgrade to Android TV 10 coming soon (there’s no Google TV UI upgrade planned). Support for Android does mean this model gets the Disney+ app.

HDR10, HLG and Dolby Vision are covered on the HDR side, but there’s no Dolby Atmos sound with this model featuring a sound system developed by Onkyo.

Voice control is possible via the remote, and circling back to the model’s Android support, there’s Chromecast, the Google Play Store and Google Stadia. The UA2B is available from £399.

Again, there’s Dolby Vision and Atmos sound processing makes it to this model, while there’s the ‘Works with’ support for both Alexa and Google, so a connected device is required if you want to operate the TV ‘hands-free’.
