Gizchina News of the week
It sounds like a bummer on the surface, but the good news is that none Chinese IP’s are redirected to an international splash page. The only details on the page are that LeMall have future plans to expand outside of China. No specifics are given, but you have the option to sign up for email alerts to get news direct from the company.
We believe that LeTV will first launch their accessories to international markets such as headphones, VR goggle etc to test the water. It’s also highly likely that we will see the new LeTV 4K box offered internationally which would tie in nicely with a new global streaming service (similar to Netflix) that has also been hinted at.
So far I have been impressed with LeTV, their speed of growth and ambitious plans, but I hope they haven’t bitten off more than they can chew. I also hope that the speed of their growth won’t effect the quality of their service and products. Let’s see what the future has in store.
