Saturday, 21 November is World Television Day 2020 and to celebrate this annual occasion, high-end television company SKYWORTH has just launched three new TV sets.
These include the SXC9800, a premium television with gaming-level specifications, as well as the SUC9300 and SUC9300 Pro.
According to SKYWORTH’s brand manager Jaco Joubert, the new additions reflect the theme of World Television Day 2020, which is TV Makes a Difference.
“Television continues to be the single largest source of video consumption globally,” he said. “While screen sizes may have changed, and consumers are able to create, post, stream and consume content on different platforms, TV remains number one.
“The interaction between emerging and traditional forms of broadcast creates a great opportunity to raise awareness about the important issues facing communities and the world at large, which is exactly what we saw happen this year.”

SKYWORTH also announced the latest addition to its high-end offering, Android 10. It comes with Far Field, access to more content in the Google Play Store, improved hardware and speed, larger memory, AIoT, Cast Play and Two Way Bluetooth Transmission.
This latest addition to the SKYWORTH Android TV stable follows the launch Android and AI TV in South Africa.
The SKYWORTH SXC9800 and SUC9300 Pro will be available in South Africa from January 2021 and will come in two different sizes – 55” and 65”. The SUC9300 is currently available and comes in three different sizes – 50”, 55” and 65”.
World Television Day
The UN General Assembly declared the 21 November World Television Day in 1996, recognising TV’s increased impact on decision making, entertainment, communication and globalisation.
Today, there are 1.67 billion households with a TV worldwide. In 2019, TV advertising spend worldwide was a staggering $166.3 billion.
Joubert concluded, “TV touches countless viewers around the world – millions of entertaining, inspiring, and informative stories, just waiting to be discovered.
“It’s been found that on average, people watch 3.5 hours of television a day. Whether it’s news, sports, concerts, series, or movies, we turn to television to entertain and inform.”
