Hitachi ends 6-decade run on TVs in shift to 'internet of things'

Japanese electronics maker to sell Sony products via its sales network

Hitachi has sold flat-panel TVs under the Wooo brand, whose market share in Japan came to just over 1% last year. 

TOKYO -- Hitachi will stop selling televisions under its own brand in Japan this fall and instead offer Sony products through its dealerships, aiming to preserve a vital sales network even as the company beats a retreat amid a shrinking market.
