The Xiaomi Mi TV 4 will go on sale once again in India on Tuesday via online and offline channels. This will be the third Mi TV 4 sale in India, and is scheduled for 12pm IST via Flipkart, Mi.com, and Mi Home retail stores. While the new Mi TV 4 was launched less than a month ago, Xiaomi has been teasing the launch of more TVs in India, which will be less expensive than the current model.
The Mi TV 4 price in India is Rs. 39,999, which places it above the company's smartphones if we go by the pricing only. As for launch offers, buyers of the Xiaomi Mi LED TV 4 get free 3-month subscriptions (worth Rs. 619) to Sony Liv and Hungama Play, the Mi IR cable (worth Rs. 299), and on-site installation worth Rs. 1,099 for free. The 11-button Mi Remote that's bundled with the TV can be used to control a set-top box apart from the television itself, using the Mi IR cable priced at Rs. 299.
