The old CRTs were built to last, but modern flat-screen TVs have mainboards and power supplies that die far too often. I would hope to get 7+ years, but smart features will be woefully out of date and a serious security risks on your network by that point.

The software is not going to matter much if the hardware is not very good.

Do people still believe anything this guy/OnePlus said/promised? Remember the headphone jack? Poof, that's gone. Besides, most people keep TVs for longer than 3 years. So this is just a PR bull.

vrvly, 30 Aug 2019isnt it quite short for tv... you buy tv every 3 years?Well, I've bought two TV's in the last 4 years and already feeling like it's time to upgrade, whenever HFR-supported models get a bit cheaper I'll go for the next one. My current Sony TV is the last 60 Hz display in my house and that has just has to go.

It is a f*ckin TV. You have had your TVs for decades, and I am certain there was not a single update. You have been happy so far, right?

Your landline phones also didn't have updates. Quit whining.

Not enough. NVIDIA does it much better. Their Shield TV Set top box has entered its 4th year of support and got Android P TV recently. And that thing launched 4 years ago. And it's "only" 200$. A full fledged television has an expected lifetime of 5 to 10 years. Support must follow. Otherwise, what's the incentive to buy their TV rather than another device with proper software support (and that can be replaced for a fraction of the TV's price if its support gets dropped)?

isnt it quite short for tv... you buy tv every 3 years?

Hope it will be a good TV .......

I agree, 3 years is not enough. I have had my current TV for 4. I will have it probably another 2 or 3 years before I replace it as its still a very good Sony TV.

with a SoC from MediaTek ?!
Let's see!

... but even so its very short, as told here.

NotAnOpinion, 30 Aug 2019So, TVs are getting fragmented now? Fail!Android TVs are been fragmented for the past 5 years, only Fuchsia OS can fix the absolute state of Android ecosystem as a whole

For TVs 3 years are too short, their expected life time for common consumers are MINIMUM 10 years in my region!! 3 years promise no big deal! My LG TV getting updates even after 7 years!!
