Of all the TV brands on the market today, Hisense may have the most Bluetooth enabled options. Nearly every TV they make comes Bluetooth enabled.
Do Hisense TVs Have Bluetooth?
Yes, the following Hisense TV series have Bluetooth: A6, A60, A6G, H55, H65, H8, H8G, H8G1, H9, Laser TV, U6, U7, U8 and the U9 series. To enable Bluetooth on your Hisense TV press the Menu button then Settings > Network (or Remotes & Accessories) > Bluetooth and select your device.
How to enable Bluetooth on your Hisense TV
Before we get into the exact steps to follow to get your Bluetooth working on your TV, make sure that the device you are trying to pair is in pairing mode!
I know this sounds obvious but you would be surprised how often people run into this issue.
They don’t see their headphones or sound-bar in the Bluetooth drop down menu because they never put their device in pairing mode.
Every device requires something slightly different to get it into pairing mode. Air-pods, for example, require you to press and hold the button on the case until the white light starts blinking.
Most other devices follow a similar pairing process.
Ok, now that your device is in pairing mode, to enable Bluetooth on your Hisense TV follow these steps:
- Press and hold the Menu button on your remote
- Then navigate to Settings (gear icon top right)
- Depending on your TV model, from here you will select Network OR Remotes & Accessories
- Finally you’ll select Bluetooth (or your TV will already be searching!)
Once you’ve enabled Bluetooth, it can take a few seconds before you hear your audio after turning on the TV.
That’s because when you turn your TV on, it’s sending a Bluetooth signal that takes a moment before it connects. So don’t worry if the next time you turn on your TV you don’t hear anything right away.
