You know that expensive TVs are TVs that are worth Kshs 1 million and above, right? If you have forgotten, in 2013 Sony launched a shillings 1 million TV and shortly thereafter Samsung followed them by launching a Kshs 3.7 million set. Thus, top of the range TV sets by today’s standards are TV sets that go far beyond the Kshs 1 million mark. That’s why when Sony introduces 55″ and 65″ inch Sony A8F Series TVs for Kshs 399K and Kshs 650K respectively, we have the right to headline them as affordable.
