Positioning of Insignia televisions

Best Buy positions televisions as a cheap consumer brand, televisions have mediocre technical parameters, but they are inexpensive. And they're meant for buyers looking to buy a cheaper TV. For this reason, televisions have very mediocre screens with a color depth of 8 bits and a frame rate of 60 frames per second. In 2018, Best Buy signed an agreement with Amazon to use the Amazon Fire Smart TV operating system in their televisions. This will integrate the Insignia televisions more deeply into the Amazon services. The Insignia TV brand Bes Buy will also be a partner of Amazon and the televisions will be sold through Amazon.

Where Insignia televisions are made.

Best Buy is a retail chain because it is clear that it does not develop televisions, televisions are ordered from OEM, ODM manufacturers under the Insignia brand. There is an opinion on the internet that Insignia TVs are made from components from Samsung, LG, Toshiba from previous years. But that's not the case, the policy of the leading manufacturers is that they only supply screens. The electronics developed for televisions by LG and Samsung are not supplied to third parties. It is supposed to block the production of television replicas. Well, Toshiba has not produced televisions at all since 2015 by licensing the Compal Electronics, Inc. brand, and in 2018 Toshiba completely abandoned the video business by selling its visual solutions division to Toshiba. The division was bought by the Chinese Hisense.

So who makes Insignia TVs, if we look at the sticker, all we can see is the indication that the TV was made in China.
Insignia TVs with Amazon Fire Smart TVs are made in China by Hisense. To understand Hisense, of the total number of assembled televisions, Hisense sells approximately 50% of its branded televisions. The rest of the televisions are made under other brands.

Insignia TV guarantee service

As a brand owner, Best Buy offers warranty services for televisions that are sold. The policy of warranty repair is that it is cheaper to replace inexpensive TVs with a new TV in the event of failure than it is to repair them. More expensive big screen televisions are being repaired.
