OSAKA -- Sharp will sell smart televisions equipped with Roku streaming capabilities in the U.S. starting in spring 2022, returning to the American consumer TV market after a six-year absence.

The Osaka-based company looks to roll out 50- to 75-inch liquid crystal display TVs with superhigh-definition 4K display. The sets will be made at a Mexican plant run by Taiwanese parent Foxconn, the world's leading contract electronics assembler, which is strong at keeping costs down.
