They will be available for purchase on other eCommerce sites too.
After launching its 15 latest HD, FHD, 4K, TVs, VU has announced that it is expecting a revenue in excess of 50 million dollars. The competition is tough as VU will be competing against manufacturers like LG, Samsung, Toshiba, Panasonic, etc.
Domestic brands like Videocon and Micromax are popular in the Indian markets too. Sony is facing bad time with its TV and phone business. Some news sources claim that Sony will be quitting these 2 businesses. Thus, Sony is no more a competitor to VU. But some of its old LED TVs with Bravia engine are still in high demand in India.
