LeEco, who had their big US launch last month, is now looking to bring their products to more and more retailers. Currently, their ecotv's and ecophones are only available on their own website, LeMall.com however beginning December 1st, their products will then arrive at Amazon, Best Buy and Target websites. There's no word yet on whether their products will be available in Best Buy and Target stores, however. This is a great thing for LeEco, as they are able to gain more exposure for their products in the US. This could be due to their purchase of VIZIO, who already has their products available in all of these retailers – and many more – within the US. Remember, LeEco announced they were purchasing VIZIO earlier this year, ahead of their big US launch.
That's not all that LeEco has to announce today, they are also done with flash sales on LeMall.com. Instead, their products will be available 24/7 on LeMall.com. Meaning that you can go to their website at any time and purchase a new smartphone, or TV without having to fight everyone else to grab one. LeEco is also continuing their LeRewards offer for their products. Which means users can save up to $1,000 instantly on their products. If you're looking for a smartphone, you can save $100 instantly on the Le Pro3 and Le S3, both of which are pretty interesting smartphones in their own right.
LeEco has been known as the "Netflix of China", for being the first company to gain streaming rights for movies and TV shows in China, a place where copyright infringement is a pretty big deal. Since then, LeEco has been working to product products that users can watch their content on, like smartphones, TV's and much more. They've done fairly well in China, and decided to hop on over to the US. Something that most Chinese manufacturers have yet to do. Many of their competitors have been focusing on emerging markets like India, Singapore, and Brazil before coming over to the US. LeEco has has a bit of a rocky start in the US, but bringing their products to three of the biggest retailers in the US, things are looking up for the startup.
