Can TCL TV Play Videos Stored in a USB Drive?

Yes, most of the modern TCL TV models allow you to play content from a USB storage device. However, first of all, you have to pay attention to what USB format TCL TV supports. Make sure your USB drive has been formatted with FAT32 or NTFS. In addition to that, the ROKU enabled TCL TV even supports FAT16, EXT2, EXT3, or HFS+.

Some people complained that their TCL TV failed to detect the USB drive. That's probably because USB drive requires more power than the TV can provide. Generally, USB 3.0 drives will work in USB 2.0 mode on your TV. Some USB 3.0 drives may not work due to insufficient power supply. As different drives have different power requirements, you can use a USB 2.0 extension cable or USB 2.0 externally powered hub to get around this restriction.
