Hisense launches budget big-screen 4K TVs

The only difference between the M5500 and black K5510, is their finish. The former boasts a silver bezel and stand, while the latter is black.

The televisions can stream Ultra HD content from Amazon Prime Instant Video, Netflix, and BBC iPlayer, as well as upscale standard definition sources. Both models are also compatible with High Dynamic Range content, to deliver "brighter whites and deeper blacks".
