This line-up continues Haier's plan to further its goal of making technology simple and accessible to the consumer, helping to take consumers' home entertainment experience to new heights.
"As the brand evolves in the U.S. market we are pleased to use CES 2014 as a showcase for the new Haier," said John Homlish, svp digital products group, Haier America. "CES 2014 will showcase the breadth of our television line and the flexibility and options we offer."

These new developments come in response to the evolving consumer lifestyle that has accompanied the rapid emergence of smart and connected TV technologies in the past few years.
The 2014 line-up will open up with the 3-Series LED, which includes Roku Ready models and select models with a built-in speaker box for enhanced sound. The line then steps up to the 5-Series, which includes Roku Ready models engineered with their own 2.1 sound system.
