This deal is expired. Here are some options that might interest you:

This is the first time these 4K Roku TV's from Hisense have dropped below the Manufacturer's Suggested Retail Price (MSRP) of £379.00 and they are (currently) still being exclusively sold through Argos in the UK, so you won't find a better deal than this one. Other screen sizes (43-inch, 55-inch, and 65-inch models) are also being discounted and this 50" model represents another big saving versus the usual selling price. Essentially, it's a 4K smart television with the "smarts" provided by having a Roku player built-in to the TV and (as an added bonus) you also get 'Freeview Play' with all the additional catch-up services that are included. If you've been looking to upgrade your television to a 4K-capable model, then you could do far worse than to invest in this one at under three hundred and thirty quid. For your money, you'll be getting access to Netflix, NOW TV, Prime Video, Apple TV+ / iTunes Movies & TV, BBC iPlayer, ITV Hub, All 4, My5, TVPlayer, UKTV Play, Shudder, YouTube, Google Play Movies & TV, Rakuten TV UK, Shudder, along with Freeview Play for Horror Bites and CBS Catchup On-Demand plus your choice of 8,700+ additional Roku channels (apps) filled with streaming content. Moreover, Disney+ is due to arrive at the end of March 2020... so you'll soon have access to that, as well !!

Any chance of an HUKD moderator adding this deal to the Roku tag list? Only it is an officially licensed Roku product (SEE: roku.com/en-…-tv FOR DETAILS).

Thanks.
This is a bargain
What is the HDR like on these Hisense sets?

You need to spend over 750 to get decent HDR ...
Is it viable to connect a YouView recorder as the “set-top box” and a Sony sound bar?

Is it also viable to utilise one remote control?

You can connect pretty much anything to these, including YouView plus other cable or satellite boxes and AV equipment such as sound bars (Sony or otherwise), as well as Blu-Ray players, game consoles, etc, etc. The supplied remote can be used for most things - see the Hisense Roku TV User Manual (Pages 11-12) for details - and, if not, you will find that most universal remotes are supported. For more in-depth information, see the generic Roku TV User Guide from the Roku (UK) website and search for the terms about which you require further details.

One last thing that may be of use is that the source inputs can be renamed. So, although "Set-Top Box" may be displayed as one of the standard options, you can always change the name of whichever HDMI input your YouView box is connected to, and have it display a custom title - e.g. YouView Box - or something else of your own choosing, to better reflect the specific AV device(s) connected to your Roku TV.


Hope that is of some use
Thanks for that IoW_Skin
Do you know if there is a benefit in having the Roku integrated rather as a stand-alone stick?

There's benefits to be had in both use-cases.

Opting for the 'Roku TV' with the Roku OS baked-in means you effectively "free-up" one of the HDMI ports for use with another piece of AV equipment, as opposed to using it with an external (plug-in) Roku player or similar streaming device.

Investing in a "stand-alone stick" such as the 'Roku Streaming Stick+' adds portability, which is great when you travel, as it's small enough to carry around (unlike a 50-inch television! ) but will occupy an HDMI port and (possibly) an USB port on your TV so you may want to bear that in mind.

Generally speaking, I'm not a fan of most so-called Smart TV's as they are not well supported (apps-wise) in the long term. Just look at all the apps removed from Samsung TV's in the last ten years, as a prime example, and the relatively sluggish UI's they have on account of the lower-powered processors that are used in many cases, However, the Roku OS is much better supported - and I have eight years experience of this - so having that built-in to a 'Roku TV' suggests to me that you'll get greater longevity from the apps and, by association, the television itself... without needing to add another device to make-up for any apps that are no longer supported. There's also the inclusion of 'Freeview Play' on these Hisense Roku TV's, which you won't find on any of the other plug-in Roku devices, so that may also be a consideration.


Food for thought, anyway!
