Controversial electronics manufacturer Kogan has teamed up with controversial AFL club Essendon to release a TV branded with the sporting club's logo.
Bombers fans are able to order the 32-inch, 720p LED TV from Kogan's Web site now, although shipping starts on September 23.
The $259 screen has three HDMI inputs, supplemented by a USB port that can play downloaded video formats. The 'Official Essendon 32-inch LED TV by Kogan' has a variety of performance-enhancing features, like a built-in PVR function that can record digital shows when a hard drive or flash drive is plugged in over USB.
Interim CEO of Essendon FC, Ray Gunston, applauded Kogan for its part in bringing the TV to market, saying that buying the TV would be "another way for Bombers fans to show their loyalty and commitment to a football club which has brought them so much excitement, success, and happy memories over the years."
Kogan CEO, Ruslan Kogan, told GoodGearGuide the company is also open to partnering with other clubs. "We were asked this question when we partnered with Collingwood and did a Magpies TV. We were then asked the same question when we partnered with Geelong and did a Cats TV. We'll let our actions speak louder than words."
