Arriving in August, the 40-inch, 46-inch, and 55-inch HDTVs will cost $399, $499, and $799 respectively. The 50-inch Ultra HD television will arrive in September for $999, making it the second sub-$1000 UHDTV that will go on sale in the US, after Seiki announced its own 39-inch set for $699 in June.
