HDMI 2.0

HDCP 2.2

HDCP 2.2 ensures that all the 4K content that is transferred from a source (Blu-Ray player, DVD player, etc.) to the display (the TV) is secured with copyright protection.  Bearing your convenience and future use in mind, Sceptre is compliant with HDCP 2.2 on most of its 4K UHD TVs.

MHL allow streaming of contents from your compatible smartphone or tablet to Sceptre TV, which capitalize on the visually enhanced picture quality.

Audio Return Channel (ARC)

Audio Return Channel, or ARC, uses a single HDMI connection to send audio from a TV to the SoundBar or AV Receiver.  Using one HDMI cable, video is send to the TV with an HDMI cable, and that same HDMI cable sends audio from the TV back down the same cable.

Consumer Electronics Control (CEC)

The Consumer Electronics Control (CEC) feature allows users to control HDMI connected devices with only one remote.   Since more audio content can now be accessed with ARC and CEC, entertainment just took a giant leap forward.

AMAZING TV BEST I EVER HAD

This TV has BEST pic love the 4K It looks HUGE bigger than 55 everyone says so. Some reviews say sound bad , however if you dont turn up the base maybe it sounds gallow but I turned base up & treble a bit. It sounds great & it can be LOUD! Lol This TV I have volume at 8 & it is loud enough to hear movie even when my AC kicks on & I have bad hearing in one ear but its plenty loud & sounds good. Wait til you see the picture. I played a 4K animal planet movie right out of the box & it blew ne AWAY!! My son can not believe how inexpensive it was too. He is going to buy this same TV for himself. I highly highly recommend. You wont be sorry. It is the best quality picture I have EVER had in a TV in the last half century I have been watching TV. Hurry. Go buy one!!! For sure am telling my friends about it!!!

PHENOMENAL 4KHD TV

I bought this TV in September. I love everything about it from sound to picture. The colors blend so well and it was a great price. However it isn’t very durable, I placed it in the back of my car to transport somewhere else and I did hit one bump and now the whole screen is cracked. So for a future buyers I would suggest only transporting with multiple layers of styrofoam to protect screen and don’t place anywhere where there is a chance something could hit it or it could be knocked down because the tv is very fragile! Once again, a great buy! Would definitely recommend

Great NON SMART TV!

Got this last week and so far it's "great" as compared to my failing 10 year old 65"Toshiba. It has a beautiful picture the volume is good enough although the speakers sound rather tinny by themselves, but that's OK as I got a hi-end system that fixed that problem. It's also NOT a SMART TV as I didn't want one and don't need one either.
