Lloyd Unveils Five LED TVs

Issues an open challenge for 1 crore rupees.


Lloyd has launched five new LED TVs including a 55" 3D LED TV, adding to their existing series. Speaking at a press conference graced by its brand ambassador Karan Johar, Lloyd Group President, Nipun Singhal also issued an open challenge to prove that any of the Lloyd TVs is inferior to TVs from any other brand, with 1 crore rupees as a prize money.

Timing the launch in anticipation of the festive Diwali season, Nipun Singhal stated that Lloyd TVs offered the best quality TVs in their price range. He said, "We are assuring our customers best in class quality with our state-of-the-art LED televisions and are therefore happy to announce 1 crore “Quality Challenge” for our customers: We have compared a 32 inch model of Sony, Samsung with a Lloyd TV of the same screen size and approx at the same price point and challenged  the perception in consumers mind by saying that if anyone can prove the other equivalent screen size and priced models are better in picture quality than the Lloyd TV as above, we would offer 1 crore as a cash prize".  Of course, we already know that is going to be next to impossible to meet this challenge considering the "similar priced models" clause, which will be tough to meet.
