Telly inks partnership with DirecTV Stream for free TVs

Less than two weeks after announcing its flagship free television set, startup Telly has inked its first major partnership. Starting this week, new customers who sign up for a DirecTV Stream plan will get priority access to Telly’s waiting list for their no-cost 55-inch dual-screen smart TV set. Telly is expected to begin shipping later this summer and has set a goal of distributing at least 500,000 high-end television sets. Telly’s TV sets sport a 55-inch 4K resolution display with three HDMI ports, an integrated soundbar with a six-speaker driver system, and a unique secondary screen that displays advertisements, sports scores, stock tickers, weather, and more. The company says the secondary screen shouldn’t interfere with the overall viewing experience.

The company collects data on how a person uses the set — including what programs they watch — and delivers personalized advertisements on the lower screen. Executives at Telly said they developed Telly to be mindful of how and what kind of advertisements are shown. Telly officially debuted last week with an offer that gives streamers the chance to get their hands on a free TV set. That offer still stands, but starting this week, viewers who sign up for a DirecTV Stream package will get priority access to the waitlist. .stk-6b48aa7{box-shadow:0 0 0 2px rgba(120,120,120,0.1) !important}.stk-6b48aa7-container{background-color:#f3f3f3 !important}.stk-6b48aa7-container:before{background-color:#f3f3f3 !important} .stk-fff85bd{margin-left:-20px !important}.stk-fff85bd .stk–svg-wrapper .stk–inner-svg svg:last-child{opacity:0.7 !important}.stk-fff85bd .stk–svg-wrapper .stk–inner-svg…Telly inks partnership with DirecTV Stream for free TVs
