JD.com, an ecommerce site that recently formed a strategic alliance with Chinese internet giant Tencent, will be the exclusive sales channel.

Mr. Alix Cloux, the Director of Gameloft (China) said, "Gameloft picked TCL because we see TCL's leadership strength as the No.1 TV brand in China, as well as its market position and rich user base in the smart TV industry. In the future, Gameloft will provide more blockbuster games for global debuts on TCL game products and continue to exclusively bring surprises to users of TCL game products."
