Between 2015 and 2018, all Sharp brand TVs sold in the United States were made by Chinese manufacturing company Hisense. As of late 2019, Sharp Corporation has regained the license from Hisense and now continue making Sharp branded TVs.
Regarding this, how long do Sharp TVs last?
A Sharp TV would typically last for five to seven years. However, its lifespan could increase to ten years depending on the frequency of use and how well-kept it is.
Also know, is Hisense the same as Sharp?
Sharp. In 2015, Hisense received a five-year license to use the Sharp brand on televisions in the Americas. Hisense also bought a Sharp factory in Mexico. In June 2017, Hisense was sued by Sharp under its new owner Foxconn, seeking to have the license agreement halted.
