Croma, the popular electronics retailer from the Tata Group, is getting into selling products under its own brand name.
As a major step in that direction, Croma has announced a partnership with Amazon to launch ‘Croma Fire TV Edition Smart LED TVs’, a new range of smart TVs for the Indian market.
Quite simply, on the face of it, Amazon would be supplying its tried and tested Fire TV to be branded under the ‘Croma’ tag.
With Croma belonging to the Tata stable, this may be also part of the major foray that the Tatas are planning through their super app.
Interestingly, Croma, apart from having its own brick and mortar stores, also has a nominal online presence through its retail website that actually competes with Amazon in the electronics goods segment.
But through this partnership both have found a common ground, and both of them have a separate page on their respective websites for Croma Fire TV.
“Amazon and Croma have a history of working together and offering Amazon Devices to customers across India through their offline stores,” said Parag Gupta, Head of Amazon Devices, India.

The new range of Croma Fire TV Edition Smart LED TVs come with a Zero Dot Replacement warranty for the 1st year, comprehensive warranty for 3 years and life-time service via the Croma chain of stores and nation-wide service network.
